DHCP probs (not ethernet)


Ok, still having huge probs here with dhcp. 

I'm using Red Hat 5.1 (upgraded to 5.2 pretty much). When booting, it

Using DHCP for eth0... failed.
                       ^ Huge pause here.

Looking in syslog reveals:

Feb  7 12:23:31 localhost dhcpcd[665]: ioctl SIOCSIFBRDADDR (ifConfig):
Cannot assign requested address

This brings eth0 down if it was up. 

I'm using dhcpcd-0.70-2.

NIC et all work perfectly when manually set. Turning eth0 on before
running dhcpcd does not help.
