dhclient starting automatically


Hi,
I've installed dhclient on my RedHat linux PC and when I set the BOOTPROTO=dhcp in the file: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, the dhclient starts automatically when the PC is started. Where is the automatic startup configured?
Thanks,
Paul.

All system initialization scripts are in /etc/rc*

/etc/init.d/

/etc/rc.local is executed last.
