I don't have a lot of experience in bureaucratic big shops, so it's
been difficult to concieve of a situation where DHCP needed to be
deployed seperately from PXE and what that would look like.  

It was my understanding that the dhcp client would request a lease,
then the address and all other pertinent information would be sent to
the client.  I did not realize that the client asked for PXE
information seperately.  

If somebody spent a few scarce seconds setting me straight, I would
certainly appreciate it.
