OK, try

It uses the tagging system, so you can force broadcast for only BOOTP
like this:

dhcp-broadcast=bootp

or only DHCP:

dhcp-broadcast=#bootp

or only some hosts:

dhcp-host=00:11:22:33:44:55,net:broken
dhcp-host=00:11:22:33:44:56,net:broken
dhcp-broadcast=broken

(if you already have dhcp-host lines for machines, add "net:broken" to
those, don't have more than one dhcp-host line for a host)


or only some clients, if they send a vendorclass:

dhcp-vendorclass=broken,"nastyclient"
dhcp-broadcast=broken

Cheers,

Simon.
