"dhclient" to get an IPv4 address from a server.
"dhcp6c" to get an IPv6 address from a server.

No, that's the DHCP server daemon that doles out addresses.

But what are wanting to use as your DHCP server?  The same computer?  A
different one?  I thought you wanted to use your access point as it.

-- 
[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
2.6.25.6-55.fc9.i686

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
