Description of problem:
Since I updated my FC2T3 system to kernel-2.6.5-1.353.athlon getting
an IP address via DHCP sometimes fails. Network card is an e1000.
This happened now twice during boot-up. Running dhclient manually
after the system has come up get an IP address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update to kernel-2.6.5-1.353
2. try to get an IP via DHCP on an e1000 network card
this got fixed a build or two later.
reopen if its still doing it with current rawhide (-356 right now)
