booting into an MS DHCP environment

I'm new, but learning.  I've installed RH Linux 6.0 in our corporate, MS-centric LAN.  We, of course, use MS DHCP to punch down IP configs.  My Linux box is not getting the DNS or Default GW data.  I've figured out how to add the default gw using 'ifconfig'.  How do you add the name server values, and better yet, how do you get Linux to accept ALL of the DHCP parameter sent by NT DHCP servers?  Obviously, WINS is probably out of the picture.

you can add name servers in the network control panel or through linuxconf, the default gateway can be configured there too for future reference

You have to edit the dhclient-script which comes with the dhcp client software to change those configurations for you. Which distribution are you running? I have done so for SuSE to accept those infos...

As the question stated, I'm running RedHat 6.0.  Can you give more detail on the "dhclient-script" you mentioned?  Is that the name of the file, or is there a program to run?
