I have a small lab of PC's which are booted either as NetBSD or
DOS/WINDOWS/NOVELL. We have boot servers on the same eithernet link.
I would like to have all the machines use bootp to get their IP numbers
when booting NetBSD to allow for identical configurations on all
machines in the lab.
Is there a way to have ifconfig use bootp to aquire it's IP rather
than have it set up in a file in /etc/hostname.interface? Or is there
a simple bootp client which could be run to determine the IP address?
Thanks in advance
