SUMMARY: DHCP, 2 network cards, Solaris

I originally posted a message up here stating that it was darn near
impossible to get Solaris DHCP working with two network cards in the system.
Since that time I have changed 2 factors.  I first changed to Intel cards
from the SMC cards.  I can't say for sure if this was a fix, but I know that
rather than getting a "No reply in Init" error I got a "No reply in select"

So I realized that at least half of the DHCP transmission was getting
through.  This was using the Solaris 8 10/00 release.

Then I upgraded (actually I ended up re-installing because the upgrade path
was totally horrible) to Solaris 8 01/01 and DHCP seems to be working great
right out of the system.

I think there may be a little bug in the dhcpmgr though, when I tried to add
an address range of with 10 possible clients to the
network it said that those addresses were not in the network, but once again
I just forced them in the table and it all worked out just fine.
