Default TFTP PXE Server

I've got a laptop here with no CD/floppy drive and non bootable usb ports. It's got an ethernet adapter with pxe support and I need to install windows 98 on it (yes it's that old).

I've setup TFTP correctly as far as I can tell, because the laptop gets assigned an ip address from the PXE server but refuses to load any further or give me any boot options. It times out with TFTP E32 which basically is a timeout error and can't find pxelinux.0. As far as I can tell, all of the files are in their correct folders and the tftp settings all point to the correct directories.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
