DHCP conf file

Ok, so nobody can help me with my FOG post so I will try asking a different way and see if I can get help. I am running a fog server but put that aside. In windows when configuring DHCP you can add options like 067 bootfile and other things like this. I am trying to do a pxe boot and...
pxe file not found
tftp file not found

I believe that I need to configure the file with something like that of windows. Does anyone know how you do this in linux? I have configured the dhcp.conf file with what it says to do. To enable a bootfile, or something like this what would I do? Any ideas?

Next, one sample of dhcpd.conf.

ddns-update-style ad-hoc;
allow booting;
allow bootp;

shared-network domain{
subnet netmask {
option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers;
option netbios-name-servers;
option subnet-mask;
option time-servers;
option routers;

group {
option vendor-class-identifier "PXEClient";
filename "thinstation.nbi.zpxe";

host thin-pxe-1 {
hardware ethernet 00:e0:b4:a1:dd:03;



That really works, I've tested.

The main options are:
next-server; # the tftp server
filename "thinstation.nbi.zpxe"; # the name of the image
