Cobbler has been tested with tftp-server, so I would recommend ignoring 
the warning, as it won't affect other cobbler commands. I don't foresee
any other problems coming up with atftpd... I'll look into better 
detection of the tftp-server type in the future.

This check is basically there to alert the user if the tftp server 
location in /var/lib/cobbler/settings (defaults to /tftpboot) does not 
match what their tftp server is set up to for.
If your atftp is configured to use /tftpboot, and that's the value you 
see in /var/lib/cobbler/settings, you should be good to go.
