Jumpstart using DHCP

Hi all

I need to install a jumpstart server. Okay done this before but I need to get over the boot server having to be in the same subnet issue. Searching google, it seems that Solaris 10 allows you to use DHCP, so instead of arp/rarp, I can now use this.

So, anyone got any install notes on Jumpstart using DHCP ?? Ive never setup / used dhcp on a solaris box.

Also, whats the difference between jumpstart and JET ?? Is JET a layer of additional software that goes over the top of Jumpstart ?? So, you install jumpstart like normal, then install the JET packages, and you then have a more easier jumpstart to configure ?
