Dear All,
I'm running the DHCP server with different port.
It seems that parameter(DPORT="1067")in dhpcd.conf
no impact, when the client boot the process.
option option-129 "DPORT=1067";

I've read
I've created customize the ROM image to run on port
1067 (http://www.rom-o-matic.net).

on the system(K12LTSP)server:
#ps -ef|grep 1067
root 4806 1 0 17:05 ? /usr/sbin/dhcpd -p 1067 -q eth0

on the client screen:
Loading room image...
Rom Segment ....
Etherboot 5.2.6(GPL)...
This Etherboot uses non-standard port 1067 and 1068
Relocating _text ...
Boot from (N)network or (Q)uit ?
Running dhcpcd on port 67  <--- Why is it using 67 ?

ERROR! dhcpcd failed!
kernel panic:....

One thing that I haven't try is to compile the kernel.

Is there any way other than compiling the kernel ?
