I have the folowing, quite urgent problem. Our ISP of our students
dormitory changes to the end of this month (this is: on Thuesday) and I
was just lucky to get this morning the information, that this will lead to
a DHCP network. Hmm ... I'm even more luck, since originaly they wanted to
change to DHCP _today_ ... so I can still use the network for a few days,
among others to get DHCP installed here. 

And thats the problem I have: I have no experience with that, I never
played around with it and now I should get it working till Thuesday :-)
Has somebody experience with this, perhaps even on an Debian 2.2 or Debian
Unstable/Woody system (I use the later, but they shouldn't be that too
different). I guess it shouldn't be that difficult, but are there some
hidden problesm, some tricks or usefull information which could prevent a
few days of headache. Which packages do I need beside dhcp, dhcp-client?
Or do I even need them?

Thanks for any help...
