[Grml] PXE-Boot Parameter

I'm using GRML via PXE on my debian sarge server.

Everything runs perfect, but I noticed, that there is the cheatcode 
"nodhcp" in the PXE-Docu on 
LABEL grml
KERNEL linux26
APPEND ramdisk_size=16384 root=/dev/ram0 rw init=/etc/init nfsdir=<YOUR 
IP>:/mnt/nfs/grml \
     nodhcp noprompt noeject apm=power-off nomce initrd=minirt26.gz vga=791

If I remove the "nodhcp", the client gets an IP and the DNS-Server. With 
the standard config including "nodhcp", the client gets an IP and is 
booting, but it gets only manually a DNS-Server entry by running 
dhcp-client manually.

So what is the reason for the nodhcp-entry?

BTW: Knoppix uses this entry for pxe-booting, too!
