Did that using YaST.

Why do I need the daemon? Don't I just need the client?

OK - I'll bite. Why did it work flawlessly when I rebooted
several times? Doing the math, the DHCP client said it
got a lease for 1800 minutes, which is 10 hours. That's
about when the whole system collapsed. Why would eth1
(the non-DHCP'd interface) suddenly lose its routing?
When I got to the machine (two reboots later), the dummy
interface had eth0's parameters, eth0 was 0.0.0.0, and
eth1 was OK (192.168.1.254). Total weirdness - never saw
the likes with RedHat's DHCP. OBTW - RedHat's distribution
of Gnome LinuxConf has YaST begging for mercy (and I thought
YaST was cool compared to Red Hat's control-panel).
The DHCP client I was using is the one on the SuSE website.
SuSE makes an awesome workstation, but I can't get it
to route for beans.
Anyway, being the money-grubbing capitalist republican that
I am, I'm going to focus on where the money is, and in the
RedHat's got the ticket. At least I can acknowledge whose
slave I am.

The one that Lenz pointed me to has excellent instructions.

That's ok. Red Hat's working fine. Thanks anyway.
