PXE Boot

Hi there I have windows 2000 server running DHCP. I
configured the server to give out addresses to BOOTP and
DHCP Clients. My windows 2000 pro clients, once in
windows gets an IP Address from the server. My problem
is that when I attempt to PXE Boot, my clients don't
contact my DHCP server. I have 3Com 3C905X cards in my
clients with version 0.99j or higher. I am not
necessarily looking to use RIS but have other means of
booting with PXE. Can anyone help me? Is there
something I am missing?

Scott,
Spanning tree is not turned on. I also want to
point out that the DHCP Server and client are on the same
subnet. I am using F12 and have also tried a disk,
neither work. Any other ideas?

OK, so when the client starts up it does not get an address and fails before
requesting a boot file. What does the error message say at the point of
failure?

Do all your PXE clients fail or just a certain machine or model?

Are there any error messages in the event log under System Log for DHCP or
BINLSVC?

You don't have RIS installed, just DHCP?

Hmm, I don't know much about Norton's product. Maybe someone else who has
used it will have some ideas.

Well it's not even the Norton Ghost that's the problem,
my clients won't even obtain an IP address from my DHCP
server.
