I'm not intimately familiar with how FD 1.2's config files are set up, but

Everything initially starts from C:\FDCONFIG.SYS , even
C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT (SHELL=... /P:) , so you can inspect or edit that
manually, or single step (F8) at startup.

A quick "xgrep -ri dhcp \*.bat" shows "\FDOS\BIN\fdnet.bat" as the culprit.

A quicker "xgrep -ri fdnet \*.bat" shows "\autoexec.bat".

"dir /s/a-d/b \dhcp.exe" shows two binaries:  under both
"C:\FDOS\NETWORK\" and "C:\MTCP\".
