[K12OSN] Netware, DHCP and Multiple Kernels

Hi All,

We are a Netware shop (v6.0), and we use it for all of our internal 
fileservers, authentication and DHCP servers. K12LTSP plays nicely with 
all three of those services!

Now the question: I've successfully tested PPC (Macs) and Intel 
computers acting as terminals connected to the same server - very cool. 
To make that work, I had to use DHCP services on the LTSP box so that it 
could send the correct kernel to the terminal. Is it possible to 
configure a Netware DHCP server to intelligently hand out the correct 

One solution is to move all DHCP services to Linux, but if I can avoid 
disrupting the current stable DHCP setup, that would be best.

All ideas are welcome!
