I'm running RedHat 5.2 out of the box, a Kingston 10/100 nic(tulip driver, connecting to the Internet with a cable modem (@home).  At boot, the DHCP client fails to get an ip address from my isp, but I can run  my '/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S10network start' after I login as root and DHCP client gets the address.  How can I fix this startup problem?  tia

Sounds like you have DHCP starting up before the network.
What run level are starting networking in? Or are you starting it?

You need to start networking at boot (start eth0) and start it before DHCP.

Go to the control-panel, networking, select your eth0 interface and edit the properties so it starts at boot.

During startup, I see:
Using DHCP for eth0...
modprobe: no dependency information for module: "/etc/sysco"
modprobe: no dependency information for module: "/etc/sysco"
DHCP wait expired
..
It's like this /etc/sysco is getting cut off from a script or something.
We are talking about dhcp client and not dhcp server, right?
