Vendor Options

I am trying to configure my dhcp server to send certain vendor options
to certain clients with the associated vendor-class-identifier.

I know the following:

-          The client give the following Vendor class identifier:
wyse-1000 (confirmed with set string below)

-          I need to declare the following options:  

o   Option ftp-server code 161 = array of ip-address; 

o   Option ftp-user code 162 = string;


I have a very simple subnet declaration with the following:


Subnet netmask {

                Option subnet-mask;

                Option routers;

                Option domain-name;

                Option domain-name-servers,;


                Set vendor-string = option vendor-class-identifier;



My DHCP works fine.  What I want to do is ensure that all clients in my
subnet that give the "wyse-1000" identifier are given values for the two
options that I want to declare (ftp-server and ftp-user
anonymous).  Any help would be appreciated.  I am running ISC DHCP3 on
UBUNTU 6.06 LTS with the latest patches/update for the build.
