5<para>The dhcp package comes with both a client and a server program for
6using DHCP. If you want to install it, the instructions can be found
7at <xref linkend="dhcp"/>. Note that if you only want to
8use the client, you do <emphasis>not</emphasis> need to run the server and
9so do not need the startup script and links provided for the server daemon.
10Note that to use the client, you still need to alter your
11<filename>ethnet</filename> script as described in the next section.
12You only need to run the DHCP server however, if you're providing this
13service to a network, and it's likely that you'll know if that's the
14case; if it isn't, don't run the server!</para>
16<para>To configure the client, you need to modify the
17<filename>/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0</filename> file
18(or the appropriate one for the interface you are running DHCP on)
19you created earlier by adding the appropriate <userinput>DHCP_PROG
20</userinput>, <userinput>DHCP_START</userinput> and
21<userinput>DHCP_STOP</userinput> values.</para>
23<para>Then create the <filename>/etc/dhclient.conf</filename> using the
24following command:</para>
26<para><screen><userinput>cat &gt; /etc/dhclient.conf &lt;&lt; "EOF"</userinput>
27# dhclient.conf
29interface "eth0"{
30prepend domain-name-servers;
31request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
32 domain-name, domain-name-servers, host-name;
33require subnet-mask, domain-name-servers;
35# end dhclient.conf
