Either that or you need to configure the RIS server to not try to claim
access to the rest of the universe.

This might be hard, however, because of how the PXE specification is done
(if no PXE boot server is received, it will try to obtain one via
broadcast on the normal DHCP port.  The RIS server will claim this one,
and oh boy...)
