Re: DHCP and Debian 2.2?
You should have a package called dhcp-client.
how well does your laptop work with dhcp ? i tried with multiple dell
laptops (Xircom 10/100 pcmcia) and had major problems (with debian,
slackware and mandrake) trying to get an ip on boot..seems we could get
one after the machine was warmed up for 5-10 mins but it never could
during boot(and yes dhcp was loaded after the pcmcia/ethernet stuff)
assigning an ip manually at boot worked fine ..
