Most of people suggested to disable bootp(common out from /etc/inetd and services),
for my situation in my system, I would like to leave it and use following way to get rid off
that messages(of curse, I do not think that are error messages):

 write the shell script and run it by crontab to clear the messages.

I am not satisfied with the way that I have down, but I can not think
the better ways.

Thanks for all people who have responsed to me and I really appreciate your time.
