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 (3C940) May 31 05:02:10 kernel: sk0: <Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. Yukon> on skc0 May 31 05:02:10 kernel: sk0: Ethernet address: 00:0e:a6:46:f4:d9 May 31 05:02:10 kernel: e1000phy0: <Marvell 88E1000 Gigabit PHY> on miibus0 May 31 05:02:10 kernel: e1000phy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, 1000baseTX-FDX, auto and 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) Don __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
