TFTP boot problems in Gusty AMD64

I run ltsp in a bussiness environment. I have LTSP installed (Ubuntu Feisty) in a i386 (server & client) environment. Now I am setting up a new server that is AMD64 but the thin clients are i386.

I set up two static interfaces one 192.168.1.x for the lan side and one for the LTSP side.

I installed LTSP server sudo apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone openssh-server
then I built the environment sudo ltsp-build-client --arch i386. Then I updated the kernels sudo ltsp-update-kernels and then rebooted.

When I try to connect from the i386 client (anyone), the client gets its address from dhcp (and is confirmed in Syslog) but TFTP just hangs. I get TFTP........ and it just times out. Any ideas on what is wrong?
I also tried wiping* the contents of /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp and trying the sudo ltsp-update-kernels command again with the same results. Below is my dhcpd.conf

# Default LTSP dhcpd.conf config file.


subnet netmask {

*** range;

*** option domain-name "";
*** option domain-name-servers;
*** option broadcast-address;

*** option routers;
#*** next-server;
#*** get-lease-hostnames true;
*** option subnet-mask;

*** option root-path "/opt/ltsp/i386";
*** if substring( option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9 ) = "PXEClient" {
******* filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
*** } else {
******* filename "/ltsp/i386/nbi.img";

*** }

Thank you for any assistance.
