    It sounds to me like you want bootp support in the kernel because the
    mkinitrd script is
    not easy to use. Solvable problem, not necessarily a kernel problem

    I just sent a patch into Linus which fixes IP autoconfig, but Alan sez
    "it has-got-to-go" (with elaboration) so I don't think your plea is
    going to get farther than 2.4.x. :)
