Slow dhcpcd resolution

My Red Hat 6.2 PC at work takes seemingly forever to obtain an IP address
from our Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a DHCP server.  Meanwhile my Red Hat
6.1 firewall at home grabs a DHCP address from MediaOne within seconds.

I tried downgrading my dhcpcd package to the 6.1 version, but performance
stayed the same.

Any ideas?  Might be something configured wrong on the NT side of things,
but only my Linux box is getting the slowdown.
