Is your ARP server up and running? This message is typically generated due
to some networking problems..
Typically, the tftp images are located (on your tftp server) below /tftp

Also, you need to links in this tftp directory, both pointing to the
actual image file. The symlinks should be named after the ip adress of
your client, in hex notation, and one of the should have the string
".SUN<arch-name>" appended.
Example: If your box is a SUN4U machine (it is probably) and has the ip you have to create the links like this:

cd /tftpboot
ln -s tftpboot.img C0A80001
ln -s tftpboot.img C0A80001.SUN4U

Hope this helps.
