RedHat Enterprise WS DHCP

Hey Good People,

I have just installed Enterprise WS (for Athlon64) and am having a hard time getting a DSL connection up. It is a dual boot XPpro, so I know the connection is good.

When I try to get the connection configured, the only choices I get for connecting to the DNS are dialUp and bootp ... DHCP is greyed out and not selectable. I can only guess that dhcp is not intalled/active or something.

Can someone give me a little insight as to getting DHCP up and running?

thanks for any help and patience.

ok, im gonna lead you through the way to set this up with just a terminal, only because i know it better and it doesnt vary much between distros

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
then edit the ifcfg-eth0 file with whatever editor you like
nano ifcfg-eth0

it should read


this should be your basic file, giving dhcp and enable when you boot your computer, try doing this, then restart your pc and you should be alive with dhcp (HOPEFULLY)
