Yes; initially it will do only bootp, but DHCP is assumed to be coming.
IMHpersonalO, bootp is suffient.
From RFC 2131:
I do not believe the extra bits DHCP can offer a client will be used in
the loader. Thus BOOTP is suffient. Applicable RFCs are in
BOOTP is not necessarily sufficient. BOOTP does not allow truly
dynamic configuration, or at least not with the ISC dhcpd. It at
least requires a host and hardware declaration for each BOOTP client,
even if you allow dynamic IP addresses to be assigned, while DHCP does
not. In my case, I would need to use DHCP because of this limitation.
