You have a problem with dhcp here. Are you sure you want it ? It seems
like the dhcp client doesn't find a dhcp server...
I mean, why not pick up some private ip adress (like 192.168.0.2) and
rewrite your eth0 entry in /etc/network/interfaces as :
iface eth0 inet static
Hasn't your windows box a fixed IP already ? If so, just take the same
This may be simpler than trying to fix dhcp (also I don't have any
experience with it so I can't help on that)...
