Do you use the kernel-based or the userspace nfs server? I've seen the knfsd
fail on a recent debian installation, but the userspace nfsd works without problem.

Did the client try the correct IP address (i.e.did you see any packets coming from
the client accessing the NFS server?). Did the client get an IP address, especially 
the kernel?

BTW, this has not much to do with pxelinux ...
