Question TFTP AND BOOTP --Troubleshoot

I am trying to setup a Diskless network in my office using netboot,bootp,tftp,nfs.Those who want ot know more go thro the link
--Coming to my question.I tried to install TFTP and BOOTP in my servrer machine(I am using Debian so using apt-get install ****).They mad entries in inetd.conf
bootps dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/bootpd /etc/bootptab
tftpd dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd /tftpboot


My /etc/services file contains the followaing entries.
bootps 67/udp # bootp server
bootpc 68/udp # bootp client
tftp 69/udp
Now restaterd my inetd server.and check whether these tftp,bootp servers are running using
#netstat -nap | grep udp
The O/p is
udp 0* 1258/inetd
udp 0* 1258/inetd
As u know bootp is listening on port 67.
As u know tftp is listening on port 69.
But when tried to use the bootp server from client side The server is not responding.
So again i tested whether BOOTP and tftp are running using
#telnet localhost 67
It says connection refused.similary for tftp.
Then again I tested using a bootp client called bootpc
It says NO Response from bootpserver.unable to continue
------NO my qn is whether BOOTP and TFTP are running in my server or not?.If yes then i am getiing the desired results.if no howto check it.
Plz reply me with a brief answer
