dhcp3-client 3.1.3-2ubuntu3.3 (i386 binary) in ubuntu lucid
This is the client from version 3 of the Internet Software
Consortium's implementation of DHCP. For more information visit
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol like BOOTP
(actually dhcpd includes much of the functionality of bootpd). It
gives client machines "leases" for IP addresses and can
automatically set their network configuration. If your machine
depends on DHCP (especially likely if it's a workstation on a large
network, or a laptop, or attached to a cable modem), keep this or
another DHCP client installed.
Extra documentation can be found in the package dhcp3-common.
