I just did a gentoo install - thus the late reply (these things compile forever) and dhcp works fine with my sis900 at the install - had it running in chrooted environment for more than a day w/o hickups.
I didn't work however when I booted from the new OS but that was a first.
With debian I never had a problem with it either with the regular netinstall.
With the 'testing netinstall' CD I didn't have any luck with it.
With Libranet using pump it is more than flaky - gets disconnected every other minute and I have to restart the connection.
With mandrake there where similar problems with dhclient.
