RE: ifup, dhcp troubleshooting
I'm sure I had to include "Packet Filtering" and "Socket Packet" in the
Networking Options in make menuconfig, before my dhcp client would work.

if i boot with my old kernel, a 2.4.18bf2.4, everything works properly, so
the configuation and client are sound. when i boot with my custom compiled
kernel nothings happens, no error messages. if i try 'ifconfig -a' the
adapter is shown, but without an IP. I checked the dhclient & interfaces
man pages. Here's my syslog entries with eth0:
sis900.c: v1.08.02 11/30/2001
PCI: Assigned IRQ 3 for device 00:03.0
eth0: Realtek RTL8201 PHY tansceiver found at address 1 as default
eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xd800, IRQ 3, 00:08:98:ed:46:4e
the only suspect line is:
ds: no socket drivers loaded!
i'll look into ds man page.
