Look at the 'server_args' in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp.  It should
specify the directory where tftp will run.  Since there is
no authentication, you have to pre-create files there with
world-write permission before tftp will overwrite them.
  touch filename
  chmod 666 filename
should let you tftp a copy in.  Also make sure you aren't
blocking it with firewalling.
