I'd like to install the latest snapshot on a laptop that's currently
running 3.7-release.  The boot CD fails to get a dynamic IP address.  My
question is where is the most appropriate archive/list to research
whether this is a known problem?  I just want to make sure I'm posting
to the correct place before I write up the details.

Thanks,

Have you tried dhclient <interface>  at the shell?



Booting the CD to a shell prompt and then entering "dhclient wi0" gives
a endless series of:

   DHCPDISCOVER on wi0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 4
   DHCPOFFER from 192.168.1.1
   DHCPREQUEST on wi0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
   DHCPDISCOVER on wi0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 4
   ...

The NIC is a D-Link DWL-650 that, according to dmesg, initializes fine.
The same hardware works fine with the cd37.iso CD.  I'll be glad to
supply any other information that may be of use.

Thanks,
