I've had some problems with dhcp clients on pcmcia cards.
Pump works OK for me, out of the box, with some dhcp servers, it doesn't
work with all servers though. I think its less likely to work with NT
The other one I've played with is dhclient, I think its more likely to work
with more dhcp servers, but I found it needed eth0 to exist before it would
work. I edited the pcmcia scripts and put "ifconfig eth0 188.8.131.52" just before
dhclient gets called and it seems to work OK for me.
