i dont know .. anyway my inetd was right, a standard one as i read
in your faq. i posted it in my first post. i cant control the client beha=
(or im unable to :) ..

my bootptab,


my inetd.conf,

tftp    dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/in.tftp=

i used to launch bootpd -d9 so i dont have a bootpd inetd entry.

this is a successfull boot:

Mar 12 23:46:27 vivaio bootpd[867]: found (pa)
Mar 12 23:46:27 vivaio bootpd[867]: bootfile=3D"/tftpboot//lifimage"

this in a unsuccessfull boot:

Mar 12 16:39:37 vivaio in.tftpd[544]: connect from
Mar 12 16:39:37 vivaio tftpd[545]: tftpd: trying to get file:=20

mm, i see. anyway i got those errors only with the ext cdrom
(a sony drive in a cool apple cd300 chassis :) .. so all was probably due=
the cdrom. but with no errors the lifimage (the newest i found, 09march) =
unable to write the filesystem to the disk.

mm i was able to run a badblocks check and i wrote a filesystem
with another machine (debian/intel) before trying the good (for me) lifim=
=2E. anyway now it rocks. probably it was a software failure i cant track=
(maybe a borderline dead drive, maybe it will be dead tomorrow :).
