Questions (mostly TFTP)

Ok, maybe these are newbie questions, and you can feel sorry for my users,
but I am in a FreeBSD ISP (mostly WISP) environment, and I can't find the
answer to this stuff anywhere.

I wanted to activate my TFTP server today. Easy enough, just uncomment the
TFTP line from /etc/inetd.conf.

Well, there is no line to uncomment in my /etc/inetd.conf file. I have
looked high and low and I can't seem to find anyone else that has ever had
this problem.

Afraid to just add the line, when everywhere I read says it should be there
to begin with, I just decided to install a new TFTP server and be done with
it. Tried utftpd and tftp-hpa. But both crash on install with a libiconv

Anybody care to share with me the best way to get a TFTP server to run?
