bootp network configuration



I have seen a couple people mention that dhcp network configuration
worked for them with cvs boot-floppies. 

when i tested it failed, and now the only reason i can think of as to
why is that i have a bootp server, not a dhcp server.  (only reason i
have it is to netboot this powermac which wants bootp).  

potato boot-floppies configure the network fine with this setup, as
did MacOS before i obliterated it.  

looking at the logs everything appears to be working fine, from the
server logs:

Jun  8 03:36:19 plato bootpd[4571]: version 2.4.3
Jun  8 03:36:19 plato bootpd[4571]: reading "/etc/bootptab"
Jun  8 03:36:19 plato bootpd[4571]: read 1 entries (1 hosts) from "/etc/bootptab"
Jun  8 03:36:19 plato bootpd[4571]: found 192.168.0.1 (socrates)

Jun  8 03:36:21 plato bootpd[4549]: Received: DHCPREQUEST
Jun  8 03:36:21 plato bootpd[4549]: Sent: DHCPACK
[repeats]

the client logs (which i didn't make a copy of) look basically the
same, it shows that its recieving everything the server sends.  

the man page for dhcp-client implys that it supports bootp, so whats
wrong?
