If it doesn't need to be failover protected, no problem.  Define a
small range on one server (or two different small ranges on both
servers) that only allow dynamic bootp.

If you want it to be failover protected, you need 3.1.0.  Sort of.

I've also just noticed that although all the support at the failover
protocol layer for bootp leases is in the server, we forgot to remove
the parse error if you fail to configure "deny dyanmic bootp;" in the

So if you want to snarf the latest 3.1.0 and remove that parse
warning from server/confpars.c lines 1515 to 1567...it might
even work!
