If enabled tftp in both /etc/inetd and /etc/services
and a directory /tftpboot exists (or you create it) you can enable tftp
by sending a HUP to inetd.

In solaris 8 or later the simplest way is "pkill -HUP inetd" otherwise kill -HUP <pid of inetd>

EDIT: If you are enabling tftp for the porpose of jumpstart, this will be done automatically by the add_install_client script the first time it is run.
