Thank you for your help.

I am using version 3.1.3-2 of dhcp3-server and changed my dhcpd.conf
to the one in the mail attachment (tried with and without the
commented domain-name option.

The Linux clients again work fine, however the Microsoft Windows XP
client still does not work.

How can I get this to work with my Microsoft Windows XP clients?

With kind regards,
