 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] [PATCH] m0n0-1.1: add PXE support to DHCP server
 Date:  Thu, 30 Sep 2004 09:48:43 -0700 (PDT)
Hm... I was reading through the changelog, but must have missed this 
feature.

I'm curious: why not use the internal DHCP server if I'm doing a little 
PXE at home? I could, of course, run DHCP on my tftp/PXE server... but I'd 
rather use m0n0's DHCP if I can. is PXE a really abnormal use case? I find 
it quite useful at home, but I could be in the minority.

As a hidden option, does this mean that I would need to just write it into 
the XML config directly to enable it?

thanks
