Kickstart and DHCP

I have a PXE boot setup trying to install FC7.  After the PXE boot and 
the vmlinuz and initrd.img are loaded, I am attempting to load FC7 via 
NFS from kickstart.  My kickstart file is loaded but when the server 
attempts to acquire an IP address via DHCP before NFS mounted the drive, 
it times out after multiple DHCP requests.  Using ethereal, it appears 
the DHCP server is responding correctly with the same IP address the PXE 
server gave previously.  For some currently unknown reason, the DHCP 
response is ignored.  Any ideas on why this would happen?
