I'd normally only reply to Mr. Serafino, but I wanted to make sure that
the above statement be "revisited" on the list c/o my previous summary
(which I believe he is referring to):

  'Several people confirmed that Solaris 2.8 10/01 and later are working
   flawlessly for them.  Installing all post-10/01 DHCP patches is also
   Most are impressed with the GUI administration tools in these late
   DHCP server releases which seem to make administration easier than
   ISC's DHCP server "single, flat config file" setup.'

I don't think I said it is "better than ISC" just that other people said
Sun DHCP GUI tools "make administration easier."  I, myself, am sticking
with ISC's server.  In fact, the only reason I gave the Sun DHCP server
a consideration was because I had just taken the Sun SCNA exam where it
comprised of a good 10% of the test.  Which led to my Sun Manager's
