I'm planning a dhcp failover deployment based on RHEL 4, which comes 
with  DHCP 3.0.1.  I know that failover protocol is one of the newer 
features of dhcp, so I'm wondering if I need to find and / or build rpms 
of DHCP 3.0.4, or if anyone has experience and with the 3.0.1 rpms that 
are part of RHEL 4?

Obviously if they work and if failover works with 3.0.1, it would be my 
preference to say with it since it keeps the system Red Hat supportable; 
but I've no problem building (or using someone else's) 3.0.4 rpms if 
it's necessary.
