LTSP dhcpcd port problems

The problem at hand is, that while my dhcpd runs at port 1067, and etherboot is ok with it, the LTSP dhcpcd that runs before the NFS mount is attempting port 67, obviously failing horribly. I cant seem to find any way to specify the port for dhcpcd, not to even speak of getting it set for LTSP..

The problem that caused this problem is, that my ISP:s dhcpd is getting in the way, so etherboot finds it first, and fails horribly as it gives no kernel location..

So, im all open to ideas on fixing either of the problems, as fixing one will solve the whole thing..

LTSP 4.1
Etherboot 5.4.0-rtl8139 via a zlilo image

Well, this was sorted on the official #LTSP channel, heres the solution:

dhcpd.conf has to be set up so that it passes parameters for the next request, so that dhcpcd will use the alternative port. Heres the modified host section(just an example):
    host ws004 {
        hardware ethernet    00:11:22:33:44:55;
        filename             "/lts/vmlinuz-2.4.26-ltsp-3";
        option option-128    e4:45:74:68:00:00;
        option option-129    "DPORT=1067";
option 128 is mandatory and not a MAC address, so its the same for everyone.
