I installed 1.6.2 and the output for dhclient there is *very* different 
from the output I get under 3.0. So for some reason the whole dhclient 
thing is broken in the 3.0 install from the restore CD, at least as far 
as I can tell. However, I don't see how I can learn enough about DHCP 
and the configuration in the next few days to fix it. :-/
