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

12<para>We currently provide installation instructions for two
13<acronym>DHCP</acronym> clients, <command>dhclient</command> (from the
14<application>dhcp</application> package) and <command>dhcpcd</command>.
15We present both sets of installation instructions which also discuss how
16to create an appropriate service script to work with the
17<command>network</command> bootscript and the <acronym>DHCP</acronym>
18client of your choice.</para>
