Here is all I get on the tftp system:
  tcpdump src host
tcpdump: listening on eth0

My dhcp file is:
         group {
                 #filename "pxelinux.0";
                 filename "/home/tftpboot/pxelinux.0";
                 #filename "/home/tftpboot/bzImage-2.4.19-ltsp-1";
         # Bootstrap machine
         host Bootstrap {
                 ddns-updates on;
                 hardware ethernet 00:50:FC:34:70:F2;

As you can see I've tried lots of different variations.

I'm a complex person. I have a real and an imaginary part.
