Hi, ISC DHCP users!

In short, my target is to add ability of booting thin clients from netboot
server (server with running on it TFTP, NFS, DHCP) without making changes or
disabling DHCP server running on router.

Is it possible to configure DHCP server in way, so DHCP server will be
responsible for providing ONLY data regarding network boot and getting all
other data (IP address, netmask, gateway, etc) from DHCP running on router
and providing all data together to client.

Maybe there are some other ways of adding netboot ability to my network
without changing currently running DHCP server?

I got work netboot before with ISC DHCP server WITHOUT router’s DHCP and now
I need to make it work together with router’s DHCP.

Thanks in advance.
