Trying to setup a PXE boot on a linux client, I get this error
CLIENT MAC ADDR: 08 00 27 69 73 7A GUID: 000000000-0000-0000-0000-8C89A5E06C86 CLIENT IP: MASK: DHCP IP: PXE-E11: ARP timeout PXE-E11: ARP timeout  PXE-E38: TFTP cannot open connection PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM. FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! system halted 
The dhcpd.conf contains
subnet netmask { rage; allow booting; allow bootp; class "pxeclients" { match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) = "PXEClient"; next-server; filename "pxelinux.0"; } } 
The boot log shows that the client got the ip address, and on the server, tftp is running according to
# /etc/init.d/xinetd status xinetd (pid  2728) is running... 
and dhcp is responding to the request. I wonder why arp message  timed out?
