DHCP Request

Does anyone know where I could find information on how
the DHCP Request packet is broadcast and what it looks like?

Edit Early post: Also how the DHCP Reply packet would be
listened to, and what it looks like.

Looking at that,

I tend to find RFC extremely dry.
Though I realize thats probably going to be where I find the best information.
