Thin client not connecting to DHCP server


OK, I am trying to set up a single thin client (more will follow). However, the client refuses to accept an IP address from the server. Here are some relevant config files.

End of /var/log/messages

Code:
Aug 14 10:19:01 localhost gdm(pam_unix)[3100]: session opened for user ryan by (uid=0)
Aug 14 10:19:34 localhost su(pam_unix)[3516]: session opened for user root by ryan(uid=500)

/etc/dhcpd.conf

Code:
ddns-update-style            none;
local-port		1067;

default-lease-time           21600;
max-lease-time               21600;

option subnet-mask           255.255.255.0;
option broadcast-address     192.168.2.255;
option routers               192.168.2.155;
option domain-name-servers   192.168.2.155;
option domain-name           "ltsp";          # <--Fix this domain name

option root-path             "192.168.2.155:/opt/ltsp-4.1/i386";

option option-128 code 128 = string;
option option-129 code 129 = text;

subnet 192.168.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
    use-host-decl-names      on;
    option log-servers       192.168.2.155;

    host ws001 {                                       #<----- Fix this hostname
        hardware ethernet    00:48:54:6E:B7:46;           #<-- Fix this MAC addr
        fixed-address        192.168.2.1;                 #<-- Fix this IP addr
        filename             "/tftpboot/lts/vmlinuz-2.4.26-ltsp-3";
    }

}
If there are any other files you might need, just ask. Also, I am running CentOS 4.1.
