Here's the post about this problem on fedora forum:

Here's the ugly workaround:

In /etc/xinetd.d/tftp, set disable  = yes
Restart xinetd (/etc/init.d/xinetd restart)
Run in.tftpd (for example, "/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -l -c -v -u root -s
You can add the previous command to /etc/rc.local to make it start on boot.
