Subjectdhcp autoconfig and MTU size

I'm trying to netboot some Xeon machines on a GigE network (and from a
server) with mtu size 8k. everything works hunky-dory until the machine
gets its dhcp autoconguration done, at which point, even though the
machine responds to a ping, it freezes. If I set the mtu on the server
back to 1500, things unfreeze, but GigE doesn't like small frame sizes, so
that's not really an option. Am I correct in thinking that the kernel ip
autoconfig support doesn't set mtu sizes?
