this problem comes up more often. 
based on your excellent collaboration work i think i can build that into
our ltsp ;) 
i'm not sure i can make initramfs pick up the option-129 parameter, but
we can surely make it a initramfs.conf parameter or a kernel commandline
one, if you know before that you will use another dhcp server we could
even make it a commandline option for ltsp-build-client
(--alternate-dhcp-port or something) so things like dhclient.conf could
be adjusted as well at client build time and we can make it survive
upgrades :)

thanks for that great bugtracking session ;) i'll see if i can add it to
edgy :)
