dhcpd-1.3.6 works quite fine for me on ethernet-networks.
The Problem with 2.1 and DHCP-clients is, that they use the 0.0.0.0 IP-address
for making DHCP-Requests, when no IP-Address is assigned, but the 2.1
IP-networking-code interprets this address as an request to delete an interface.
dhcpd-1.3.6 is modified by Sergei Viznyuk <email@example.com> to use
Packet-Sockets (PF_PACKET) when generating DHCP-Requests, so the
kernel-IP-code is not involved. Of course this adds extra complexity when
dealing with other interface-types than ethernet, that is only one supported in
