Yes, Win98 workstations can talk to it. ( DHCP is not a proprietary
protocol.  Your client shouldn't care about the server, and vice versa.
If it doesn't work, then your client is not truly DHCP compliant. )  I'm
using the same setup here and all is working great.

But doesn't this require the PC to have a DHCP client
that knows how to talk to this new DHCP server?
In other words, will normal Win98(SE) workstations
work with this new server?
