I double checked the jumpstart server and found out that the problem
was my careless typo ethernet address, like many of you indicated.
The ethers should be "08:00:20:..." but my typo was "00:08:20....".
I cann't believe that I checked several times before.

Anyway, the jumpstart is going.., thanks for all the reply.

My original question is following.
