shutdown hang during eth0 shutdown
I'm having trouble shutting down, in that every time I am connected to a network with DHCP, the shutdown hangs while shutting down eth0. When I reboot, I am chided for an unclean shutdown. The hang also occurs if I do an ifdown or network stop.
I'm running RedHat 8.0 with kernel 2.4.20-20.8 on a Dell Inspiron 8000. My network card is a D-Link DFE-690TXD; no errors in the logs during startup. The card works just fine otherwise.
I don't have the option of using a static IP address without some major bureaucratic hurdle-jumping.
