The IP address used within tftp is not obtained the same way the kernel obtains
its IP address (it may even be a different address!). So how do you give the IP 
address to the kernel? With ipappend, kernel level IP config, initrd & dhcpd 
or else? I think the client"s kernel somehow didn't get an IP address for the interface, 
and thus can't contact the NFS server.
