system: FreeBSD 2.0R

I'm having problems with bootp occassionally failing to give clients 
their address.  After a failure I notice the following.

1.  I get the message:
"Sep 11 12:04:41 jasper kernel: arplookup failed: host is not on local

2. If I do an "arp -a", I get: ( at INCOMPLETE

In /etc/inetd.conf I have the following line to startup bootps when 
it recieves a request:
bootps  dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/libexec/bootpd  bootpd -t1

Is this correct? Is their a known problem with the 2.0R version of 

( I am using Winsock 2.0 with it's bootp request capability)

Thanks for your help.
