I've been using TFTPd32 to run PXE/TFTP boot services on our imaging network, but have been running into DHCP addressing issues. I'm looking at moving to a PFSense based DHCP server to move these services off the imaging server and eliminate the DLink router that is supplementing the DCHP of TFTPd32. What I am wondering is if a Linux based TFTP service will offer a feature like TFTPd32's Anticipation Window to speed up the transfer of the large ISO images we need to boot.

Have you looked at gpxe or gpxelinux.0? They allow booting files from HTTP, which is much faster than TFTP.
