Great, thanks.  Both you and Peder agree so I'll do that.  I suppose the
spec probably said to do that if I dug in deep enough.

Interesting, I'll have to remember to log that info.

No, I have no plan on integration.  My goals right now are simply to get
an executable binary that can communicate with a DHCP server correctly.
I am happy if you guys just tell me how to integrate it when the time
comes and I'll do what you tell me.


In other more general news, I have the week of May 10-14 scheduled as
vacation and I plan to split my time between this DHCP implementation
and my other open source project which is a game.  (Don't worry, when
the game is released there will be a BeOS client.)

So I aim to have evidence of some success or spectacular failure in two

BTW, do you have any plans to mark DHCP as "assigned" on the team page?
