Automatic IP address assignment

Does anyone have any experience with either on-the-fly IP
address assignment or automated IP host installation?
Since we started shipping PC-NFS, several people have
expressed concern about using PCs as IP nodes and have asked if there
was any standard way of automating IP address assignment,
either per-session or once-only at first connection. Now
I know that there's nothing in the RFCs, but I seem to remember
some talk at the December '85 PC/IP - MAC/IP Workshop at the
Univ. of Maryland. Can anyone help jog my memory?
