5<para>DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. It is a
6protocol which is used by many sites to automatically provide
7information such as IP addresses, subnet masks and routing information
8to computers. If your network uses DHCP, you will need a DHCP client
9in order to connect to it. DHCP is also used by some cable
10modems.</para>

12<para>We currently provide installation instructions for two DHCP
13clients, dhclient (from the dhcp package) and dhcpcd. We begin with a page
14which shows how to alter the LFS bootscripts for generic DHCP support.
15We then present the two sets of installation instructions which also discuss
16how to create an appropriate configuration file to work with the
17DHCP client of your choice.</para>
