Question nOOb in need of some network help.

Can't seem to get my Linux machine on the network through my LAN. (Shared Cable Connection) My Win2K Server is giving DHCP addresses, because the other 3 WinXP machines are online, but my Linux machine won't accept the DCHP IP address. HELP

-Is your DHCP client daemon running on the Linux box? See if "ps -ax|grep dhcp" returnd anything.

-In /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0,do the DEVICE, BOOTPROTO, and ONBOOT entries match the following:
If not, edit the lines to match the example.
