Which OS do you run on your host side (where mopd runs)?
From the Ethernet Device name eth0, I suppose it's Linux.
How does your /etc/ethers look?
Do you have the Directory /tftpboot/mop and the files in the following
in there? For example: 08002b11ff34.SYS

Have a look at Michaels NetBooting Howto. It's really good. Download it
from Just download the MOP Survival Pack. Or.... perhaps
it's under the files section of I don't remember. But
try it. It's very good.
