Actually, this works fine on Linux.  I use it for some of my systems at
other offices that provide RIS services for rebuilding laptops with our
corporate image.  The system itself pulls an IP via DHCP off the local
WAP gateway device, but then runs a DHCP server of its own (on the same
subnet) to send out the requisite PXE booting information for clients
when they are booted that way.  Doesn't conflict, things work, it's
actually quite nice.
