dhcp blocks startup

When I upgraded to 2005LE, I found out that it automatically backgrounded the DHCP request at startup, which was nice. Unfortunately, I had to switch to a static IP for ten minutes on one occasion, and when I reconfigured, it blocks instead!
What I mean is, the startup process won't continue until a network connection is available. If I'm not connected to a network (happens very often), it waits until the request times out, which is several minutes.
I've had this problem earlier, I worked around it my disabling network at startup, and manually enabling it when I needed it. I don't want to do that, particularly since I discovered (before the mess-up) that Mandriva automatically tries to bring up your network interface if it's down and you try to make a connection to the outside.
Anyone knows how I get it back to the old settings? Will using another DHCP client help?
