DHCP problems in RH linux 5.2

DHCP problems in RH linux 5.2

Post by William O'Nea » Wed, 13 Jan 1999 04:00:00

i just installed RH linux 5.2 and everything worked great. DHCP passed
and i was able to access the Internet. i was a happy man...until i
rebooted my machine.

after the reboot i started seeing these error messages...

Using DHCP for eth0 ... failed

eth0: Host error, FIFO diagnostic register ffff.
eth0: Too much work in interrupt, status ffff. Temporarily disabling

why would DHCP work after the initial install then subsequently fail?
and does anyone have any suggestions? i've been pouring the DHCP
mini-howto and none of the suggestions there have helped.
