DHCP works but node won't DL kernel

I'm setting up a cluster, and I have everything set up as far as I know. I don't think it even has to do with the cluster software.

On my node, etherboot runs finds it's IP Address/Server IP/Gateway but when it starts to find or download th kernel image, it just sits there.

Loading ......

From what others tell me it's subposed to fill the screen with "."s.

My vmlinuz is in /tftpboot/lts/vmlinuz-2.4.20-om2 and I've tried adding the /tftpboot/ before /lts/ in dhcpd but the node sits at the same place.

Any ideas???

xinetd problem

ok i seem to have narrowed the problem down to xinetd. I found out tftp uses or is part of xinetd, i checked the status of it and xinetd will not start/stop/condrestart/reload/restart. this worked when i first installed my distro 7.2, but since i updated it won't do anything. How would i go about fixing or downgrading this version of xinetd?
