Which tells you that a dhcp server is running and serving out ip addresses.

Sounds like the tftp transfer might be failing. You do not need tftp-hpa
installed for this to work, you do need tftpd-hpa (note the extra d for
daemon). tftp-hpa is the client. If you do
apt-cache policy tftpd-hpa
(or look with synaptic) you should see that it's installed. If not, that's
a problem. There should be a line in /etc/inetd.conf like this:
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /var/lib/tftpboot
and the output of
ps aux|grep inetd
shouldl include a line something like:
root 15508 0.0 0.1 1596 460 ? Ss Dec21 0:00 /usr/sbin/inetd
As a test you could install tftp-hpa and then try the tftp download by
tftp 192.168.0.254 -c get /ltsp/pxelinux.0
(you need to change that ip address to that of your server). You should
end up with pxelinux.0 in the local directory.

No. Can you be more specific about what you installed. If there were a
firewall in there that might make some sense but I don't see how installing
software could have this affect.
