Hi Shashi

Have you looked at the section "DEFINING NEW OPTIONS" in the 
dhcp-options man page? This explains the format and syntax for user 
defined or customised options.

Can you post the code you have tried and whatever the definition is in 
the RFC? Someone here may be able to correct it for you.
