Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to setup PXE booting using DHCP and a tftpd server.
Now dhcp works and the mobo (intel PXE Boot Agent) gets an IP address and then tries to connect to TFTP, It then complains about "TFTP open timeout" and then "Loading the boot image failed"
This seems to me to be a problem with the TFTP server, but the TFTP server just confuses me.
looking at the processes ("ps -ef | grep tftp" ) yields no server, reading around tells me that tftp is run within inetd (which is running on my pc and i can see the process). is that supposed to be like that or is TFTP supposed to show up on the process list?
Another thing which confuses me is the lack of a configuration file anywhere, there seems apsolutely no configuration file for the TFTP server, and googling for an answer didnt help me here.
the only thing i found was the in.tftp program, googling about tells me that this is the server (which is invoked by inetd when required), but no matter what commands i give it it just fails silently, whether I tell it to run standalone, or in inetd, it just seems to fail silently, so in desperation i am here to ask if anyone can help me with TFTP?
