Mac OS X bootpd configuration

I have a Mac Mini, running OS X 10.6.something. I'm using it as,
amongst other things, a wireless base station.
Apple's bootpd keeps its config in a hateful XML file in
/etc/bootpd.plist, and I need to change one value in it - it seems that
I need to change reply_threshold_seconds from 4 to 0 so that my shiny
new Kindle can connect.
But can I edit that file? Hell no.
Well, I can edit it, but then when I restart "internet sharing" it
handily rewrites the damned thing, and I can't see anything anywhere in
System Preferences to stop it from being so damned stupid.

Is reflections will show
