If you are using Altiris Deployment solution 7.1 and your DHCP Server is on  Linux  then  you  have  to edit " dhcp.conf " file with next server name & bootfile name

next-server xx.xx.xx.xx; The address of your PXE server
filename "BStrap\X86pc\BStrap.0"

No boot filename received

this error comes when you boot a machine into PXE mode to install OS on the machine but boot filename not received from your next server or this may happen because of: 

1. DHCP & PXE Server communication problem

 2. Boot filename for PXE  is not available for download into the machine

you just enter the Next server:xx.xx.xx.xx(Your PXE server IP address) and location of your BStrap.0 file

You can find out the location :  "C:\Program Files\Altiris\Altiris Agent\Agents\Deployment\Task Handler\SBS\Images\BStrap\x86pc"
