[Dnsmasq-discuss] dnsmasq v2.40: pxe network boot is failing

I cannot get network booting to work.

Client Computer:
   Dell Dimension 4600 with built-in 10/100 NIC

Server running Gentoo:
   Linux 2.6.23-gentoo-r3 SMP Thu Dec 6 04:36:06 PST 2007 i686
   AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ GNU/Linux
   Asus M2A-VM AMD-690 motherboard with integrated gigabit NIC

If I don't set "tftp-no-blocksize", it doesn't get very far,
and after setting it still fails with errors.

See here for full dnsmasq.conf, more complete log excerpt and screen shots:


Here is an excerpt from the log:

<START log excerpt>
Dec 30 23:36:30 wopr dnsmasq[10164]: TFTP failed sending
   /home/netboot/pxelinux.cfg/default to
<END log excerpt>

Here is part of my dnsmasq.conf file



Any help would be appreciated.
