	You might want to make sure your bios on the thin client is up to  
date. Some of the early PXE implementations were broken. I know I had  
to flash the Bios on my Dell GX1s to get them to PXE boot.
	From what you are saying, you are getting an IP address but not  
getting a boot file from TFTP. Is there anything else on your network  
giving out IP addresses, like a linksys router? Are you even  
connecting to a working TFTP server?
