You have to reference the file in rc.S somewhere, or else it won't run.

Also, it is "eth0".

And why do you need a special script to do this? Why isn't your machine getting a DHCP IP automatically?

sorry about the "eht0" it is eth0 in the script.
I did a read through of rc.S and i have no idea what you mean about referencing it somwhere in that file......
As why my box does not obtain a DHCP IP automatical I have no idea...... I don't know what my network looks like, i just know dhcpcd eth0 works to get my internet up, and it will not work without it
thanks,
mike

All you have to do is open up "rc.inet1" and set eth0 to use DHCP. There are comments in the file that will tell you what needs to be edited.

Open up /etc/rc.inet1.conf. Look for a section titled # Config information for eth0: . Mine hase 4 lines:

IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]="yes"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]="myhostname"

Set DHCP_HOSTNAME[0] to whatever you want your machine hostname to be. Setting USE_DHCP[0]="yes" is what will cause eth0 to use DHCP. You don't need to reboot after setting this. Simply issue this command as root

/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart

/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 also takes the arguments start and stop. On one of my machines I have an onboard NIC that is disabled and an installed PCI card. Slackware sees the onboard NIC as eth0 and my card as eth1. In that situation I made changes for eth1 instead(the entries in /etc/rc.inet1.conf that end in [1] instead of [0] as above)

Or simply use the netconfig command as root to set things up.
