Im back at my univ from christmas break and i have my system on dual boot between win2k and slackware 8.1, and when im in windows it connects to the network fine with dhcp.
but when im in linux i get this error on bootup and it doesnt connect.

dhcpcd[60] broadcasting dhcp_discover

eth0 Media link on 100mbps full_duplex
dhcpcd[60]: timed out waitinf for a valid DHCP response
what could be the problem?

my nic is onboard and using the sis900.o module btw
