Big problem with DHCP at Red Hat9


My computer is using Ethernet with DHCP. I have installed Red Hat 9.0 and i have no idea how to congfigure net connection.

I have typed "setup" -> network , "use DHCP" and so on. But it doesnt works. I've checked that i have a "dhcpcd" and there is no "pump" package (i've read about this packages in FAQ).

Could you tell me what to do? I'm not so newbie Linux user, but i've never had to configure linux.

Ps. I'm sorry for my terrible engilsh. Greetings from Poland.

You can configure your DHCP linux box by using kickstart and select network configuration... and that's it select what ever you like...

Try and see that the service for dhcp is not being block by your personal fw. Once again goto setup then goto option that says Firewall configuration and try either buy disabling your fw or allow a trusted connection to that service (DHCP).
