Who to configure eth0 to use dhco from command line


i used ifconfig to use static ip address L 192.168.2.222/24. it worked fine but i want to return the eth0 to be a dhcp client again. dhclient and ifconifg doesn't give you the option make an interface to use dhcp .... i know how to that from GUI , but i just want to know how to that from the shell..

It is actually dhcpcd, which is the client version. does it give a program error, or say "No such file or directory"?

One other idea:
Code:
udhcpc -i eth0
