	I've noticed a small bug in the DHCP client on the Soekris 4501.  The 
list sent in the DHCPDISCOVER message does not match the one subsequently
send in the DHCPREQUEST. This is technically invalid according to RFC2131.  It
does not cause a problem when interacting with the ISC DHCP server but I 
it should be noted.  The added parameter is the Root Path (RP) which is not
in the DISCOVER, but obviously needs to be there to boot correctly.
