Slow PXE Boot Server 2008 WDS

Anyone any ideas why my PXE boot is so slow, below is the setup.

VMware Host hosting server 2008 Datacentre Edition (X64)
WDS running
MDT 2008

When I PXE boot the PE image takes about 5 minutes to load.

Thoughts.

Have you checked your duplex to ensure that it matches your switch?  I alway hard code the speed instead of using Auto Detect.

Sorry took so long to close this. The issue ended up being a port security problem on the Cisco switch, our network guy solved it.
