Why my pxe clinet doesnt get ip address from DHCP server?

environment: vmware
DHCP Server1:
dhcpd.conf is ok cause i got no error msg when i issued service dhcpd restart.

allow bootp and allow booting are enabled.

Client1: pxe client

problem: when the pxe client was booting i saw below message from "tail -f /var/log/message"

dhcpdHCPDISCOVER FROM 00:0c:29:d1:a6:51 via eht0
dhcpdHCPOFFER on to 00:0c:29:d1:a6:51 via eht0

My pxe client can not get the IP address which assgined by dhcp server.

Why? Is there anyone who can help on this.
