Im not sure if this will help but I have the following in my main  
dhcpd.conf file:
  option slp-directory-agent true;
         option slp-service-scope true somscopeSCOPE;

Im running novell, and clients seem to be getting the options.  There  
is an slpsnoop tool that I got (dont remember where) that verifies this.
