Have you rechecked your hexidecimal math in the /tftpboot directory? If
you have the hexidecimal file name wrong, you'll get this error
Make sure your ethers, exports and bootparams files on system#2 are set
up properly. If you are running NIS, make sure the ethers and bootparams
maps are also set up properly. Confirm that another system (system#3
can download files from system#2 with tftp.
Thank to all of you who responded to me:
