You don't want MTFTP. Something must be misconfigured on your PXE
client, TFTP server, DHCP server, or possibly in your bootloader to
make it fall back to MTFTP. I used to use PXE and my kernel would TFTP
down in just a few seconds. Are there any PXE options in your
BIOS/Option ROM BIOS you can play with, try different settings? (Intel
bootroms in particular have some weird options.) Can you post your
tftpd conf file, dhcpd.conf, pxelinux.cfg/default file?
