The \000 is a literal null character. The DHCP server on my network is a
W2K server as well, so it would appear to be the culprit. And, come to
think of it, the Woody installer uses dhcp-client I believe. And I know
there has been a long discussion over pump vs dhcp-client because
dhcp-client is more standards compliant while pump works better with MS
DHCP servers.
