Did you enable tftpd?  Also, did you make sure tftpd is set up to
serve files from /tftpboot?  I have:

tftp    dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/in.tftpd /tftpboot

in my /etc/inetd.conf.

What does 'show ewa0*' say at this point?  If BOOTP succeeded, then
you should see your IP configuration in the console environment

I suspect it may be a problem with TFTP...

You may also want to try ISC dhcpd, I find it works a lot better than
the old bootpd.  Just add "allow bootp;" to your subnet block in
