    It is most certainly possible.

    See the Handbook chapter on "Network Servers", the subtopic
    entitled "Automatic Network Configuration. (DHCP)" In my doc
    build it's Chapter 25.3 --- but I noticed yesterday that my handbook
    seems to be slightly out of sync, so I'd check the version on the web
    site first.
