What you need is a DHCP client daemon.  When you connect and load settings from the DHCP server, your default IP address, mask, gateway, DNS server, and other settings are loaded automatically.  There is SOME support for DHCP networking in versions 5.1 and 5.2 of RedHat, though I cannot point you to the client you need.  Check your documentation and CD(s) first, then check www.redhat.com.  I believe that the HOW-TO documents contain some critical information related to DHCP, including a pointer to the client daemon.  You might also want to examine the document for people with dynamic IP addresses, though the DHCP documents should be considered as more definiative.  
   
   My pointer to the best document for dhcp on the WEB is
http://metalab.unc.edu/LDP/HOWTO/mini/DHCP.html
   and I discovered it in a search of
http://www.linux.org

I hope this gives you all that you need.
