Vendor: Scientific Linux CERN,
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which allows
individual devices on an IP network to get their own network
configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address,
etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it
easier to administer a large network.

To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or relay agent),
and on clients run a DHCP client daemon.  The dhclient package
provides the ISC DHCP client daemon.

- The server's "by client-id" and "by hardware address" hash table lists

  arising when "INIT" clients were given new leases rather than presently
  active ones. (RHBZ #627572)
