  1. how do i enable dhcpcd to stasrt on bootup

    hello eveyone


    i'm running mandrake 6.1 (just for learning) went thru the install
    (barebone) no frills (no gui) it picked up the dlink DEC nic card
    installed the appropriate modules.


    ifconfig eth0 shows the nic but with no ip. have to run dhcpcd at the
    command line then iconfig eth0 to see the dhcp assigned ip.


    during the installation i chose not to enable any of the startup
    services like the following :


    anacron
    apmd
    crond
    gpm
    keytable
    linuxconf
    netfs
    network ********
    pcmcia
    sendmail
    syslog


    i've checked the following configuration files:


    /etc/sysconfig/network
    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts*/ifup and ifdown
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/network


    can't find how to enable dhcpcd at startup. is it set somewhere in the
    compiling of the kernel ? many thanks for the help

    Ask this in a Mandrake or general Linux newgroup. This is a Redhat Linux
    newgroup. Besides Mandrake 6.1 is really, really old!!!
