BTW, i think there is some problem with dhcp servers compatibility
maybe. I was at luxembourg's LinuxDays last weekend, and there dhclient
(is this the one dhcp-client-udeb is taken from) did fail to get a
response from the dhcp server, while pump did work. I don't know
details, and this is not ppc specific, as there where also sparc and x86
boxes on the network.
