Last week (February 26-28), I brought ISC dhcpd to Connectathon and

SUPPORT
ISC DHCPD is not a commercial product, and is not supported in that sense.
However, I am continuing to work on this server with the support of the
Internet Software Consortium, so if you have trouble or want help, please
free free to contact me, Ted Lemon <mellon@fugue.com>.
In addition, there are two mailing lists for dhcpd - dhcpd-announce and
dhcpd-users. To subscribe, see http://www.fugue.com/dhcp/lists. If you
don't have WWW access, you can send mail to dhcpd-request@fugue.com and
tell me which lists you want to subscribe to, but please use the web interface
if you can, since I have to handle the -request mailing list manually.
