Default tftp server failed

Problem solved

Hi, I'm stuck on this one error for the last 6 hours and I desperately need help. Help please!
I've found one other thread and there was no solution posted. Here's what everything looks like

[[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
# default: off
# description: The tftp server serves files using the trivial file transfer
# protocol. The tftp protocol is often used to boot diskless
# workstations, download configuration files to network-aware printers,
# and to start the installation process for some operating systems.
service tftp
socket_type = dgram
protocol = udp
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -s /var/lib/tftpboot -r blksize
disable = no

[root@localhost ~]# si_mkbootserver
WARNING: this script may modify the following files:
--> /etc/services
--> /etc/inetd.conf
--> /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
And can restart inetd, xinetd or tftp servers.
Do you wish to continue (y/[n])? y
Ok, continuing...
/var/lib/tftpboot exists and is a symlink to /usr/share/systemimager/boot.
Checking for a tftp server... found.
Checking if tftp server is H. Peter Anvin's tftp server... yup - right on!
Checking for a running inetd... Not found.
Checking for a running xinetd... 4371.
Looking for update-inetd... not found.
Backing up /etc/xinetd.d/tftp...
Moving /etc/xinetd.d/tftp to /etc/xinetd.d/tftp.si_mkbootserver.bak26...done.
Restaring xinetd ...
Stopping xinetd: [ OK ]
Starting xinetd: [ OK ]
Looking for a tftp client... found.
Checking for loopback interface... up.
Does tftp server work... no.
I couldn't tftp a test file from localhost
ERROR: tftp server test failed.
[root@localhost ~]#

So that's what's going on so far i've heard some things saying that its bugged and you have to hack it a bit. Please i'm lost!
