SO you are then working with PCI8029 card and not generally available
8039 ISA cards. In that case the quotes will have to there to comment
out option lines. This is also what Dan Bo has mentioned in his post to
this thread. Personally I have only come across ISA 8039 cards (or am I

The lines need to working only for ISA cards.

Yes LTSP makes a example configuration for dhcpd and places two three
