On the firewall I was talking about, I created /etc/default/dhcp.  The


I then altered the file /etc/init.d/dhcp.  You can get to it via the web
at http://tux.creighton.edu/~pbrutsch/dhcp and compare it against the one
provided by Debian.

I should probably make a "custom" Debian dhcp package with all these
changes I've been talking about :)  I'll probably have one in the next
hour or so.
