pxe-boot server setup in fedora 9

hi all......

I am trying to setup pxe-boot environment in fedora 9 ........I have started tftpserver on port 69..
I have configured dhcp server on fedora 9 and my client is able to get ip from my dhcp server

This is /etc/dhcpd.conf file

ddns-update-style ad-hoc;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;
option domain-name-servers,;
allow bootp;
allow booting;
option ip-forwarding false; # No IP forwarding
option mask-supplier false; # Don't respond to ICMP Mask req

subnet netmask {
option routers;
option subnet-mask;

option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers;
option broadcast-address;
option host-name "localhost.localdomain";
option root-path "/var/lib/tftpboot";
filename "pxelinux.0";
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;

host localhost.localdomain {
option host-name "localhost.localdomain";
hardware ethernet 00:0C:29:94:8E:B6;
option root-path "/var/lib/tftpboot";
filename "pxelinux.0";

This is my tftpboot tree structure

|-- -
|-- boot.txt
|-- fedora
| `-- 10
| `-- i386
| |-- initrd.img
| |-- pxelinux.0
| `-- vmlinuz
|-- pxelinux.0
`-- pxelinux.cfg
`-- default

whenever i start the client it gives error as

PXE-T01 : NO such file/No access
PXE-E3B: TFTP Error - file not found
PXE -MOF : exiting intel pxe rom
operating system not found

and output of tftpserver is

Client /home/pxelinux.0, No Such File/No Access
Client /home/pxelinux.0, No Such File/No Access

can anyone please help me..........

My interpretation of your error message is that the tftp server is looking in /home to find the tftp root, but you have configured all of the files and subdirectories in the conventional location of /var/lib/. What is in your tftp config file (possibly /etc/xinetd.d/tftp)?

check your /etc/xinetd.d/tftp configuration

make sure you have disabled selinux , firewall and flushed iptables
