I second this :-)

I think this is a fair question. When I bought my Abatron BDI2000, I
had a hard time setting up a TFTP server on my Linux host... it was
much easier to use the Windowze-based TFTP server that came along
with the Abatron firmware :-(

Fortunatelly, we have some local Linux gurus here at my job place. So,
basically, what has to be done, assuming a Linux host, is:

1 - Check if you're lucky: try locating in.tftpd in your bin
directories (mainly in /usr/sbin)

2 - If you don't have it, download it from the web; better download
both server and clients apps

3 - Install them (I have a Red Hat box, so installing rpm's is
straightforward for me :-)

4 - Now, the tough part: you'll have to manually configure inetd (or
worse, xinetd - depending on your system). I can put a copy of a
sample conf file here, if you need it...
