How to configure DHCP Client

To configure a DHCP client manually, modify the /etc/sysconfig/network file to enable networking and the configuration file for each network device in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory. In this directory, each device should have a configuration file named ifcfg-eth0, where eth0 is the network device name.

The /etc/sysconfig/network file should contain the following line:

NETWORKING=yes

The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file should contain the following lines:

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes

A configuration file is needed for each device to be configured to use DHCP.

Other options
PEERDNS=, where is one of the following:
yes — Modify /etc/resolv.conf with information from the server. If using DHCP, then yes is the default.
no — Do not modify /etc/resolv.conf.

USERCTL=, where is one of the following:
yes — Non-root users are allowed to control this device.
no — Non-root users are not allowed to control this device.
