It sounds like /var/log/messages indicates DHCP success, but you still
might not have TFTP set up correctly ... possibly a wrong next-server
address in the DHCP
configuration file? Is /tftpboot structured correctly? Is tftp enabled
for xinetd.d (it's usually off by default)? There are lots of things
that could be going on.
Something like Cobbler (http://cobbler.et.redhat.com/)* might help you
with netboot setup if you aren't sure exactly what is up, and at least
covers 90% of those
kinds of setup problems. Getting the IP addresses right/DHCP, etc, is
still up to you ... but it helps some with that.
