Life would be so much easier if dhcpd could hand out a line saying
"option http-proxy"; and clients just used

However...  the best option would be to write a short script for boot
time that does something like this:

unset http_proxy
ping -c 1 proxy.company.com > /dev/null && setenv http_proxy

Does Mozilla look at the http_proxy setting?  or you might have to copy
ini files around.
