CONFIG_IP_PNP_DHCP: IP: DHCP support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IP_PNP_DHCP:

Help text

If you want your Linux box to mount its whole root file system (the one containing the directory /) from some other computer over the net via NFS and you want the IP address of your computer to be discovered automatically at boot time using the DHCP protocol (a special protocol designed for doing this job), say Y here. In case the boot ROM of your network card was designed for booting Linux and does DHCP itself, providing all necessary information on the kernel command line, you can say N here.

If unsure, say Y. Note that if you want to use DHCP, a DHCP server must be operating on your network. Read Documentation/filesystems/nfs/nfsroot.txt for details.
