How to get DHCP Client to run w/o a NIC?


I'm still trying to get my usb adsl modem to run. Installation of the RH9 drivers supplied by the vendor failed. According to vendor it's because I don't have DHCP client running. Ok, but how I'm supposed to get it to run without any ethernet card? I tried to install an ethernet with "other card" option, but couldn't activate it, because no card was found. I have no dhcpd.conf (?) in my RH9, so it's not running althought it has been installed in RH installation.

Ok if it's not possible to run dhcpd without a NIC, is it possible to disable RH to probe the NIC, by that RH could activate the "fake" ethernet and enable the dhcpd and I could finally install my usb adsl RH drivers?
