RE: DHCP client in unstable?

As I mentioned in my original message, I've tried pump (0.7.3-2) on my
PowerMac running debian unstable (kernel version 2.2.17), but was unable to
get it to work.  The deb appeared to install and configure fine, but after a
reboot, I can't ping anything except myself (not even the DHCP server).  It
appears that packets are going out onto the network just fine (my router
blinks a light indicating packets are coming from the PowerMac, and I assume
its sending packages back, but ping indicates that it never gets anything.
>From what I can gather from ifconfig and route, pump has configured the eth0
interface and routing table exactly the same as my static IP setup did.  My
static IP setup uses as the IP address, and works perfectly (as
long as my lease doesn't run out).  

Do I need to do some special configuration of pump?
Can anybody using pump tell me how they have it configured?
Can anybody suggest how I can diagnose what is going on?
