    Subjectbootp ip autoconfiguration disable

    I have tried to compile a kernel (2.4.8) with bootp support.
    i make
    dd if=bzImage of=/dev/fd0
    and i boot on the floppy.
    (I have found some doc who say that work)
    but for me ip configuration don't work, i haven't any bootp request.

    I look at the file net/ipv4/ipconfig.c
    I see that
    int ic_enable __initdata = 0; /* IP config enabled? */

    ic_enable is set in function ip_auto_config_setup
    ic_enable = (*addrs &&
    (strcmp(addrs, "off") != 0) &&
    (strcmp(addrs, "none") != 0));

    so i must pass an argument ?
    how could I do that on my floppy ? there are nothing about that in doc ?
    also if I change
    int ic_enable __initdata = 0; /* IP config enabled? */
    int ic_enable __initdata = 1; /* IP config enabled? */
    all seem work well, i have bootp request so why should i need this
    argument ?

    thank for any help
