This seems to be a common dhcpd problem:

When I do a "ls -al /dev/bpf*" on exec.php there are only 16 bpf devices!

Can I create more devices at every mono boot with the following command?
# Create a Berkeley Packet Filter
mkdev bpf 0
mknod /dev/bpf0 c 20 0

(I can't seem to find these commands in the filesystem)
I'd be really glad if a bsd/linux specialist could help us out here.
