tftp issue, unable to transfer kernel image using tftp to boot ltsp-client

When trying to boot up a ltsp-client I am receiving the following error:

Loading to load file

I have also seen the error UDP checksum error after the dots.

I have tested the tftp server by connecting to it with a tftp client on another computer and I have been able to successfully transfer that exact file.

What else should I check?

Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

Without knowing what the 2 clients are, hardware wise, or what processor the vmlinuz file was compiled for, I am guessing.
I have seen the 'Unable to load file' message when attempting to boot an i686 kernel on thin clients/old hardware that is not really i686 compatible, like many Via based thin clients.
If the working client is a Pentium or better PC, and the non-working client is some kind of thin client hardware, you may want to assure the vmlinuz file is compiled for a i386, i486, or i586, but not i686.
