Make sure you add the following to /etc/exports:

Also modify the yaboot.conf with the following:
init-message="Lumensoftware Terminal Server"

	append="init=/linuxrc rw root=/dev/ram0"

And you should be able to reduce your config in dhcpd.conf to the
    host ws099 {
         hardware ethernet 00:30:65:54:d8:b2;
         option root-path        "";
         filename "yaboot";
         option vendor-class-identifier "AAPLBSDPC";
