	It's difficult to help with so little detail, and with some ambiguity
	in your questions.

	Are you running ISC dhcpd?
	Do your server logs show arriving DHCPINFORM requests?
	Do your server logs show DHCPACK replies to these?
	Here is an extract from the log on one of our servers.

Aug 24 04:20:31 scarr dhcpd: DHCPINFORM from via eth0
Aug 24 04:20:31 scarr dhcpd: DHCPACK to

	Is your server configured with the 'authoritative' option?
