Hi,

10.0.0.10 is my dhcp server and 10.0.0.24 is the dynamic ip offered by the 
dhcp server.

Below is the DHCP debug output
====================
DHCPDISCOVER from 00:07:e9:2f:45:55 via rl0
DHCPOFFER on 10.0.0.24 to 00:07:e9:2f:45:55 via rl0
DHCPREQUEST for 10.0.0.24 (10.0.0.10) from 00:07:e9:2f:45:55 via rl0
DHCPACK on 10.0.0.24 to 00:07:e9:2f:45:55 via rl0
DHCPDISCOVER from 00:07:e9:2f:45:55 via rl0
DHCPOFFER on 10.0.0.24 to 00:07:e9:2f:45:55 via rl0
DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.102.110 (192.168.102.1) from 00:07:e9:2f:45:55 via 
rl0: ignored (not authoritative).

The first 4 lines are the communication between the rom pxe and the dhcp 
server. The last 3 lines are the communication between the downloaded 
pxeboot and the dhcp server. The downloaded pxeboot does not seem to retain 
the ip address offered by DHCP. Any don't know where it got 192.168.102.110 
(192.168.102.1) from.

Has anyone faced this problem before.

Regards
Sunil Sunder Raj
