Ah...one of the most common DHCP problems I've seen on this list.
The 2.4.18-k7 Debian kernel has
# Networking options
# CONFIG_NETFILTER_DEBUG is not set
I'm not sure how important CONFIG_NETFILTER is, but perhaps you need
it set too.....
If dhclient tells you those options are not set, then they probably
are not set in the running kernel, whatever you config file says ;-)
