Simon, just to let you know, I haven't got confirmation yet from the  
gPXE folks that they fixed gPXE to account for the additional hex(00)  
character that terminates the options provided by the dhcp offer packet.

Until I know they did that, I cant test this with gPXE.

But I figured I could test it with a carefully crafted dhclient.conf  
file on a linux box and wireshark the data to see if the dhcp offer  
packets selectively include/don't include the data.

Is the manual page / sample config file updated with examples on how  
to use this new option? if not, would you supply a mini howto so I  
could test this new option?

BTW, my last name is Hall, in case you didnt know
