For the ISC DHCP server, here's an example for setting option 252 for  
auto-proxy config:

option wpad-url code 252 = text;

subnet _yournetwork_ netmask _yournetmask_ {
	option wpad-url "http://proxy/proxy.pac";

You'd need to choose your own option name for option code 124, and a  
type (probably string), and then set whatever config you need in that  
option statement...
