Problem mounting Root FS over NFS


Hi,
I hope someone could help me with this ASAP

I compiled the linux2.4.5 kernal (slackware 8) for the master(server) node and made it nfs server. I compiled the kernal for the slave node with root FS over NFS. I had dhcp among the network options. I am using dhcp.
My server has dhcp enabled. it runs the dhcp demon and when i execute the command /usr/sbin: dhcpd , it shows that it is listening and seding .... but it doesnt receive anything from the slave(client).
NFS runs on my master node.
when i do rpcinfo -p, it shows that nfs is running.

I checked the dhcpd.conf (it is ok..)

I had made the image of the kernal and made a boot floppy from it and i am using that to start my diskless -root client(slave).

Now, when i try to start my client(Slave) with the boot disk on..it gives me the following :
-----
Partition check:
Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER
-----


The kernel is correctly configured with NFS, NFS on Root, Kernel
AutoConfiguration (DHCP), but I do not receive a DHCP request asking for
the NFS Root Server in my DHCP logs. Kernel Version 2.4.5

Any ideas?
