DHCP setup with Mediaone cable modem and RH 6.1

I just installed RH 6.1 and have a 3c509b TPO card for use with my Mediaone cable modem.  I need to use DHCP, but when I select the DHCP option, the system hangs the process and I get a "failed" message when trying to initialize eth0.

get a dos boot floppy, boot to dos and use the 3c5x9cfg.exe (downloadable from 3Com) utility to:

- Disable Plug And Play on the 509
- User Adress 300 and IRQ10
- Disable Autodetect
- Select the right tranceiver (tp, coax, AUI)

Should do it.
