Trying to Configure DHCP/BOOTP

Ok, brief intro:

We've already got a DHCP server running on <cough!> another OS. I've been trying to configure our OpenSUSE Server here to only respond to BOOTP requests, not DHCP. Now having used google to trawl the whole of the internetwebthing, I've been reassured that it's possible. The daft thing is that although there are people out there saying it's possible, they don't seem to be telling me how, at least not in anything that resembles my setup. This is troubling.

Now I'm not exactly green around the gills when it comes to Linux but I'm still a relative newbie to the "System Admin in Realworld environments" so if your answers could be the technical equivalent of talking to a child, I'd appreciate it.

Many thanks in advance knowing the ever helpful nature of the Linux Community!
