12<para><acronym>DHCP</acronym> stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.
13It is a protocol used by many sites to automatically provide
14information such as <acronym>IP</acronym> addresses, subnet masks and routing
15information to computers. If your network uses <acronym>DHCP</acronym>, you
16will need a <acronym>DHCP</acronym> client in order to connect to it.
17<acronym>DHCP</acronym> is also used by some cable modems.</para>
18
19<para><acronym>BLFS</acronym> currently provides installation instructions for two
20<acronym>DHCP</acronym> clients, <command>dhclient</command> (from the
21<application>dhcp</application> package) and <command>dhcpcd</command>.
22<acronym>BLFS</acronym> presents both sets of installation instructions
23and discusses how
24to create an appropriate service script to work with the
25<command>network</command> bootscript and the <acronym>DHCP</acronym>
26client of your choice.</para>
