Do you have access to this? It means having a NAT gateway on (or thereabouts).

I don't know if I do or don't. How do I tell?

ping-check = 1;

ddns-update-style none;

Okay. (I'm not sure about the 'dynamic-bootp' bit).

Now, where is your tftp server?

That is a good question. I looked in yast to see if I could find an
address or something for it, but nothing there. Other than that, I made
a file /etc/xinetd and filled it with this:

service tftp
disable = no
socket_type = dgram
wait = yes
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = -v -s /var/lib/tftpboot
only_from = 192.168.1.
