RE:

exiting.

dhclient only emits this message when it detects that another dhclient
process is running for the SAME interface .

Check that all your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth* files
that have BOOTPROTO=dhcp have seperate unique DEVICE= settings .

Maybe this is related to bug #153244 ?
Comment 5 Jason Vas Dias 2005-04-28 11:30:52 EDT
Yes, I think this has to do with SELinux issues, which are now fixed 
with the latest selinux-policy-targeted and dhcp-3.0.2-10+ in FC4t3 .

I've been unable to reproduce this problem with the current versions.
