no problem. For a start, I just committed my changes to the DHCP code 
into the bigbang branch. This can at least serve as a basis for a 
discussion of the design for the DHCP service. I'll try to cook 
something up for the Wiki tomorrow.

What is not yet included is the code dealing with the interface address 
guessing. This code is currently tied to the PXE code and I still need 
to isolate it properly.

1. have some code base upon which to start a discussion (check!)
2. provide some ideas and documentation in the Wiki (to be done)
3. discuss away (I'll try to be available on irc if our respective time 
zones permit)

Yes, absolutely.

That's fine with me. I'm looking forward to working with Damjan on this. 
Full DHCP would be very, very nice to have.
