ip=dhcp problem...

I've got the following problem with linux
I'm nfs-rooting a diskless client with kernel parameter ip=dhcp.
My dhcpd.conf has a "option domain-name-servers X.X.X.X;" statement and "get-lease-hostnames true;"
Now when the diskless clients boot, no name-server configured and they cant resolv.
dmesg gives me, for instance:

IP Config: Complete:
device=eth0, addr=, mask=, gw=,
host=clientFSB-237.fsb.net, domain=fsb.net, nis-domain=FSBnis,
boot-server=, rootserver=, rootpath=

So as you can see, everything is almost set up, except a nameserver!
Has anyone heard about that problem before? Are there any fixes?
