I am real glad that Bill Croft have made the BootP client and server software
available to the public domain. I think it is a very interesting package
especially for those who has a lot of PC's around running the MIT PCIP. Since
the IP addresses of those machines are associated with floppies which get
duplicated regularly by people who don't really know what IP addresses are
never mind about "CUSTOM NETDEV" and such ultiliites. The risk of having
duplicated IP addresses and subnet address inconsistency due to "wandering"
floppy can be very significant. BootP essentially allows one to have a
better (not perfect) control to IP address allocation and usage.
