By all means, if you want to have even the slightest control
over dhcp do not use pump! (It still doesn't work for me
in all machines with 2 NICs...)

I love dhcp-client, which had some serious bugs fixed in the
*woody* version. You can override the function that modifies
/etc/resolv.conf correctly now. :)

dhcpd should be fine, too, but I don't really know much
about it.
