I got ethereal to look at it. It knew what it was doing, but I didn't.
It saved out a binary file, now on

with dhclient doing dhcpdiscovers, and where are yous, the info
section kept saying

Who does Try (, btw is the local server.)
Who does Try
But dhclient never does - it just keeps on asking. What file i is
screwed up or missing? I checked resolv.conf, host.conf. hosts and
they seem ok, although that server isn't listed.
/etc/dhclient.conf isn't there, btw. This setup works in lfs-3.3

FYI only.
Further reading on w98 leads me to conclude that msvcrt.dll from an
m$-5.x C or C++ compiler is incompatible with ditto from 6.x
compilers, and ditto from 7.x compilers. I'm experimenting to get
fewest crashes.
     All the Best
