TFTPD Configuration

Using the 1.2.13 Slackware distribution, how do I set up the TFTPD server?  I have created a user, TFTP, created the directory /TFTPBOOT, TFTP has 777 access to it as does the group guest.
I use touch to create the file in the directory, verify ownership and attribute, then have the client (cisco router) send the file.
The server always kicks back with an access violation.
In /etc/inetd.conf I have used the lines:
tftp   dgram   udp     wait    tftp    /usr/sbin/in.tftpd      /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /tftpboot
           and
tftp    dgram   udp     wait    tftp    /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /tftpboot

with the same results.  The answer is not in the source distribution and I cannot find a MAN page for tftpd anywhere.

The most common mistake people make is not specifying the
full path to the file on the server. For example to save your
config file from a cisco router, when prompted for the config
filename, you need to type something like this:

c4000#wri net
Remote host []? 192.168.0.254
Name of configuration file to write [c4000-confg]? /tftpboot/c4000-confg
Write file /tftpboot/c4000-confg on host 192.168.0.254? [confirm]
Building configuration...

Writing /tftpboot/c4000-confg .!! [OK]
c4000#

Some "secure" version of tftpd (Solaris, SunOS) change the root
directory for you, so the whole path is not required.
