Is anyone aware of a better dhcp client for Windows XP and PPC... one
that reliably gets an address on a lan interface is less than 5-10
seconds on a good day? I'm looking for one that can get and install an
address in much less than a second (assuming the server is very fast).


Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!!
