you don't need the address of bootp server. see rc.bootp.gz in bootpc examples
for how to setup network. It has some bugs, but I could try to find my fixed
version. Don't use it anymore 'cause it does't work 2.2 kernels.
You must use dhcpc _and_  compile packet filetr into the kernel to be able to
directly send packets to the network.
I see the only option in using dhcp. If I'm not mistaken, it is compatible
with bootp so any bootp server should be able to respond to a dhcp request.
