Manisha: Make sure you post your replies to people below their comments. It's 
the accepted behavior of this list, and if you don't do it, someone else may 
ask you not to 'top post' in a less friendly manner. 

You can check to see if dhcpd is running by opening a terminal and changing to 
root by typing "su -" and putting in your password. Then, type "service dhcpd 
status" and press enter, and that will tell you if dhcpd is running. If you 
find it is, you might try turning off dhcpd in Selinux - you can do that from 
the menu item "security level" if you're running KDE - after you find it and 
turn it off, you'll have to reboot to make the change. If your dsl starts 
working, then, you have found the problem - I haven't found the way to fix 
this issue yet in FC4, but it has been discussed on this list before, and 
there's work going on to fix the problem. Actually, there have been many 
Selinux patches lately, so I suppose I need to check if it has been fixed, 
myself.
