I'm just starting to have a look at that now. So what happens if I
"--tftp-unique-root" and then a request comes in from a device where I
don't have a directory created for its IP? Is it possible to have a
default directory for all "unknown" devices?

Also related to my earlier question about restricting the DHCP range to
specific MAC address prefixes. I how have 4 dhcp-range entries for Snom,
Elmeg, Aastra, and Grandstream devices working fine. What happens if I
now enable "--dhcp-authoritative" on this machine? Will dnsmasq then
become authoritative for just those MAC prefixes (which is what I want)
or for any request on the network (which I assume it won't)?
