Bootp information

This is a request for information on the Bootp protocol. As I understand it,
this protocol allows a dumb device to be loaded from from a server device.

I am particularly interested to know if the protocol works using IP routers,
subnets, fragmentation, etc. Also an approximation of the PROM space required
to contain enough of this code to boot a device from power-up (i.e. one that
doesn't know its own IP address)

Please send a pointer to the apropriate information to me directly. I will
summarize to the net if there is enough interest.

Thanks in Advance
Bill VerSteeg
