I am running a Linux server with win 98 clients.  I recently set up a Linux client but I can't connect to the server.  I am using DHCP and DNS.  Shouldn't I just be able to assign a host name to the client and it should be ready to fly?

If you use DHCP, you must have dhcpcd installed and set up to get an IP address from the server.

Try to run dhcpcd eth0 and see if it works. If it does the trick, add into the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local the line /sbin/dhcpcd eth0 and it should take care of the IP address at bootup.
