IMO this means that the text currently in the manual (documenting 
dhcp-server but with a note that dhcp3-server is recommended) can stay 
unchanged for Sarge.

We will probably have to make a decision one way or another about using 
dhcp3-client (or maybe getting a stripped version) for d-i for Etch.
