Found the problem. Its all related to the in.tftpd server on Solaris 8.
I was trying to jumpstart a Solaris 10 x64 (06/06) using my Solaris 8
jumpstart server, but its tftp server doesn't support tftp options...so
the GRUB menu would load, but then booting up the kernel fails. I found
the problem doing a snoop on the jumpstart server and seeing a litany of
tftp errors, and (duh) checking sunsolve. If you have a login to it, see
document ID 6395719. Until I can upgrade my jumpstart server, I've
copied over the in.tftpd binary from a Solaris 9 system on my Solaris 8
server and they all work now. My dhcpd.conf syntax was fine all along.
