After Vixie's letter under the ISC AEgis, I'm less than thrilled about
referring you to them, but they did write the reference software.
Basically DHCP is a way to get an IP/gateway/nameserver/_et al_ upon
bringing up the interface. This is the successor to bootp/rarp. The
debian packages relating to it are
pump, dhcpcd, dhcp-client, etherconf, rrlogind, bpalogin
dhcp-dns, dhcp-relay, autodns-dhcp
