Sorry for the late summary but SUMMARY'sa on this list ar most important so
better later than never.

Many thanks to all that responded.  This looks like the answer and now I'm
comfortable with just living with it or going into /etc/inetd.conf and
commenting out the bootp* entries (& kicking inetd).

It looks like the hosts listed in the log entries are making bootp
requests (or, much more likely, DHCP requests) on the network, and
bootpd is logging the fact that it doesn't have entries for them.

It doesn't look like a problem to me; if the messages bother you, don't
run bootpd with debugging enabled (remove the -d option/argument).

Dan Astoorian               People shouldn't think that it's better to have
Sysadmin, CSLab             loved and lost than never loved at all.  It's        not, it's better to have loved and won.  All  the other options really suck.    --Dan Redican
