A new update is available for Fedora Core - Fedora Core 4 Update: dhcp-3.0.2-26.FC4. Here the announcement:

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 4
Name : dhcp
Version : 3.0.2
Release : 26.FC4
Summary : A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server and relay agent.
Description :
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which allows
individual devices on an IP network to get their own network
configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address,
etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it
easier to administer a large network. The dhcp package includes the
ISC DHCP service and relay agent.

To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or relay agent),
and on clients run a DHCP client daemon. The dhcp package provides
the ISC DHCP service and relay agent.


* Sat Nov 19 2005 Jason Vas Dias lt;jvdias@redhat.comgt; - 11:3.0.2-26
- fix bug 173619: dhclient-script should reconfig on RENEW if
subnet-mask, broadcast-address, mtu, routers, etc.
have changed
- apply upstream improvements to trailing nul options fix of bug 160655
- fix bug 167028 - test IBM's unicast bootp patch (from xma@us.ibm.com)
- fix bug 171312 - silence chkconfig error message if ypbind not installed
- fix dhcpd.init when -cf arg given to dhcpd
- make dhcpd init touch /var/lib/dhcpd/dhcpd.leases, not /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases
- Allow dhclient route metrics to be specified with DHCP options:
The dhcp-options(5) man-page states:
'option routers ... Routers should be listed in order of preference'
'option static-routes ... are listed in descending order of priority' .
No preference / priority could be set with previous dhclient-script .
Now, dhclient-script provides:
Default Gateway (option 'routers') metrics:
Instead of allowing only one default gateway, if more than one router
is specified in the routers option, routers following the first router
will have a 'metric' of their position in the list (1,...Ngt;1).
Option static-routes metrics:
If a target appears in the list more than once, routes for duplicate
targets will have successively greater metrics, starting at 1.
