Re: dhcp

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.

look at http://isc.org/products/DHCP/

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, bootp

Associated programs:

dhcp-dns, dhcp-relay, autodns-dhcp
