It may be fine for basic DHCP service for IRIX or even WinDOS, but it
misses certain features / configuration options I need in a heterogenous
environement. (E.g. I foud no way to configure _per_host_ boot file and
root directory) I also encountered interoperability issues with
HP9000/700 firmware.
