PXE E-53 error No boot filename

I have a laptop of type Toshiba Satellite M45 with pre-loaded XP Home edition.

I want to create a dual boot setup using newly downloaded Mandriva PowerPack ISO's.

I started by changing boot order to CD-LAN-HDD-FDD so I could boot from the CD ROM drive.

The problem is when it starts to boot to the first disk,

the DHCP server hangs and the error message

"No boot filename received "
PXE error E53

and the install aborts.

Any suggestions?

I should mention the network setup.

The Satellite is part of a wireless LAN and is also simultaneoulsy
connected to a 4 port router. The access point is also connected
to the router.

DHCP is the protocall Windows is using.

There is no firewall active in Windows.
