I have a home network with a router connected to the
external internet, and four PCs on the home network.
The router provides IPs with its DHCP server.
(The router is a small commercial box skrewed to
One of the PCs on the home network is a FreeBSD
(6-Stable). This FreeBSD PC runs dhclient to get its
IP configuration. So far so good.
All other PCs on the network are Windows PCs,
but have a BIOS that allow Network boots.
Therefore I would like to set up the possibility to
boot these PCs as diskless boxes from the
FreeBSD PC, using the bootpd server.
Hence, I'd like to make this FreeBSD PC a
bootpd server. But it is already running dhclient.
Would such a setup cause conflicts?
