I am trying to build on the 192.168.90.* network, but there is no machine with the address (this machine had the address previously, but it is supposed to change.  Even so, it should not even be getting to that point, as the linux kernel has not even booted yet)  Also, I am getting "TFTP: ARP timeout" errors.  Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong and how to fix it?

At that point PXELINUX hasn't even loaded, so it's not anything having
to do with the PXELINUX version.  It's something between your DHCP and
TFTP server and the PXE ROM.
