Re: [K12OSN] DHCP on a non-standard port



with isa cards i had to pass option 128 and 9 to the terminals..didn't know
how..i know there is a feature in etherboot 5,2 that ignores queries
without a filename ...but i use trusty old 5.0.11 and independent dhcp with
no chance of interfering with nt dhcp..
