User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2smp i686)

Description of problem:
The City of Largo is expanding our Linux network very quickly.  One last
aspect that is needed is the ability to boot our Xterminals (400 of them)
with bootpd.  This package seems to have been pulled.  With the changes in
the kernel in 2.4 and now that xinetd is used, the versions of bootpd  in
source form don't seem to compile on Redhat anymore.  This basic tool
should be included with the OS for large Xterminal shops that need to boot
terminals.  DHCP isn't supported on many of them.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look for bootpd on CD, not there.

Actual Results:  No bootpd module.

Expected Results:  rpm -i boopd.rpm ;)

You can use dhcpd to serve bootp requests, and it's much easier to configure.
Is that unacceptable for some reason?
