Failover + PXE

Good day,

I am looking to setup failover, but I found a line in the man page that
might throw that right out:

       Dynamic BOOTP leases are not compatible with failover,  and,  as
       you need to disallow BOOTP in pools that you are using failover

I am using the DHCP server to PXE boot servers to do installs - does
this fall in to the previous statement?

Does v4 do things differently?
