Hmm would this list be the right place. I think it's still best to use 
lfs-discuss or lfs-apps (depending on the subject) as the discussion list for 
these matters and use this list just to ask help about the actual editing 
(ie: how to use cvs to update the book, question about todo tasks, etc).

a short answer to your question though: i think that's up to the dhcp 
lfs-hint. That hint can give instructions how to modify the standard LFS 
scripts to include this. The book shouldn't start supporting too many 
features regarding networking. Before long we're adding hooks for pppoe, nfs 
and whatever else we may think up.
