The Appliance Class Identifier option is used by a Dynamic Host 
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client to identify the type of 
appliance it belongs to.  The information contained in this option is 
an opaque field that represents the appliance class of which 
identifies the type of client.  Based on this class, a DHCP server 
selects the appropriate address pool to assign an address to the 
client and the appropriate configuration parameters.  This option 
should be selected by the appliance manufacturer and included in the 
DHCP Discover/Request messages.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
