I posted this question on the etherboot mailing list but did not get any
response; I am hoping someone here will have some answer.
Does the etherboot ROM image support DHCP V3 options? Namely I am
interested in passing what is called the "DHCP Class ID" where a client
passes a parameter that the DHCP V3 server recognizes and assign some
stuff based on it. We need it to use it with Win2k DHCP User class
I looked at the parameters that are stored in the image but I did not
see a thing other than the vendor class id which based on the docs is
the string "etherboot"
Can I add parameters to etherboot image similar to the one above that
the client can pass?

In the Windows DHCP Server I have two scopes, scope1 does not have the
vendor option enable while scope2 does. I was expecting the TC to get
an IP from scope2 when I used an etherboot disk with the
REQUIRE_VCI_ETHERBOOT parm enabled. This does not happen, it actually
fails to get an IP. It will only work if I reverse the two scopes or if
I add the Vendor option in the server options (global).
