Unhappy Booting DOS client from RHEL5 Server using PXE Boot


Let me explain my environment.
RHEL5 running inbuilt DHCP Server and TFTP Server.

I want to boot my client box to boot into DOS using the image file placed in /tftpboot. As far as DHCP is concerned, it seems working fine. It allocate an IP from the IP pool and re-directs it to TFTP server. Even the client could able to find the image file. But when the client try to boot with the image, it says:
"PXE-E79 NBP is too big to fit into the free base memory"

Can any one help what it is and how to come around it.

Thanks for your response.

I had tried googling around and with many options. Every options gave me the same kind of messages.
