    Well... it is possbile... that there was an old problem with Redhat
    5.x, where you had to edit /etc/nsswitch.conf. If you don't use nis, or
    nis+ remove all refereces to it. This has 'fixed' most proples problem
    with
    regard to that. Now I can't say this is right, and I did not get the
    fix
    driectly from Redhat. I just reported it to the Redhat Install list, and
    another fellow who had created a trouble ticket, forwarded the fix to
    me.

    That was quite a while ago, but It works fine....

    thanks,

    Joshua.

    As far as DHCP - I am clueless.
