Q: What is bootpd? A: http://www.tac.eu.org/cgi-bin/man-cgi?bootpd+8

Q: Why is it looking for IP addresses (from the above link):

A:

Quote:
When bootpd is started it reads a configuration file,
(normally /etc/bootptab) that initializes the internal
database of known clients and client options. This inter-
nal database is reloaded from the configuration file when
bootpd receives a hangup signal (SIGHUP) or when it dis-
covers that the configuration file has changed.
