I used dhcp-client-beta. I modified the /etc/init.d/network as follows:

  #! /bin/sh
  ifconfig lo
  route add -net

  # use dhcp
  dhclient eth0

I use a modified dhclient-script to get nis, hostname, and static routes from
the dhcp server. I didn't change anything having to do with nfs and the mounts
work fine. dhcp is started just after the kernel (before any other networking)
in the package I installed:
