bootp stands for "bootstrap protocol" and provides a means for booting a client from the network. The technical specification can be found in rfc-1497, however, older implementations may be based on earlier rfc's (mentioned in 1497).
The rfc is avaliable from various locations, for example ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/standards/RFC/rfc1497.txt
