There was nothing in the /var/db/dhclient.leases and
the only relevant thing I found in the
/var/log/messages was this

May 31 05:02:10  kernel: skc0: <3Com 3C940 Gigabit
Ethernet> port 0xd800-0xd8ff mem 0xe5800000-0xe5803fff
irq 18 at device 9.0 on pci0
May 31 05:02:10  kernel: skc0: 3Com Gigabit LOM

Inc. Yukon> on skc0

May 31 05:02:34  dhclient: Can't bind to dhcp address:
Address already in use
May 31 05:02:34  dhclient: Please make sure there is
no other dhcp server
May 31 05:02:34  dhclient: running and that there's no
entry for dhcp or
May 31 05:02:34  dhclient: bootp in /etc/inetd.conf.  
Also make sure you
May 31 05:02:34  dhclient: are not running HP JetAdmin
software, which
May 31 05:02:34  dhclient: includes a bootp server.

so it looks like the kernel is definitely identifying
my NIC correctly (I guessed this seeing how I was able
to install over FTP) but for whatever reason the
dchlient is no longer working

I killed the dhclient pid and reran it...both as just
"dhclient" and "dhclinet -d sk0" both times the
computer would just sit there with nothing
happening...no messages no nothing (I let them sit
there for 10-15 minutes before I killed it)
