Hi David,
good to know there is DHCP progress and thank you for the status report (we 
love Haiku news ;).

A BSD is even better because our stack is a BSD port, but Linux should work, 
The problem with our R5 networking code is that our select() emulation is not 
stable (Net+ crashes) and nobody tried to fix it because most of us have a BONE 
system. So, it is better you use BONE and recompile libsocket.so and libnet.so 
BONE_VERSION=1 jam -a libsocket.so libnet.so
"-a" is to make sure everything is recompiled. After the recompile it is 
sufficient to put "BONE_VERSION=1" before "jam".

Good luck with DHCP,
