We define Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) options being
used by Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) and Extensible Firmware
Interface (EFI) clients to uniquely identify booting client machines
and their pre-OS runtime environment so that the DHCP and/or PXE boot
server can return the correct OS bootstrap image (or pre-boot
application) name and server to the client.  This memo provides 
information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Dynamic Host Configuration
Working Group of the IETF.
