If you know the device name (can check in ifconfig), then do this:
[user@box~]$ cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
[user@boxnetwork-scripts]$ cat ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp

Open in new window


BOOTPROTO=dhcp is what you want.  If it's not in there edit it and restart networking.

Also "dhclient eth0" will start it up, but it won't make it permanent across reboots.

If you want the server to run dhcp, you would need to install dhcp-server
