fedora 7, network install using cobbler fails with dhcpv4 timeout


I have cobbler running on centos 5 with dhcp. When i try to boot a server using PXE it does get an ip from DHCP i.e. from cobbler, it boots up with cobbler's menu and proceeds to install using a kickstart file.

It is able to read the kickstart file but again does a dhcp lookup and timesout with error

DHCPv4 eth0 timed out.
no dnsservers can be specified..

and finally stops without being able to load the image file.

Can anyone give me some ideas where I should look to resolve.
