Angry dhcpcd shoots up systems usage

Hi ,
I am running Slackware 9.0 and have an Adaptec (AWN 8010)
PCI card.The following is what I did to setup my wireless net connection.
/sbin/modprobe orinoco
ifconfig eth1 up
iwconfig eth1 essid lanid
iwconfig eth1 enc 000..000
dhcpcd eth1
The problem is dhcpcd shoots up the my system usage to 99% in a minute after connecting to web and my machine gets very slow untill I kill dhcpcd.
Is there anyway to debug this!!
Thanks to any suggestions/advice.
