I've seen the daemon crashing regularly with the 8.0 pxe package too.

If you could use 'tcpdump -w badpxe.packets' to capture the network traffic that causes the problem, and then attach that file to this bug report, that would help immensely.

I've just tried it on our regular network but the daemon didn't crash. I'll have to reconstructed a private LAN where I can run the Red Hat dhcp daemon. I'll let you know as soon as I have some time to set it all up.
