I had problems setting up dhcp. Needless to say I gave up and got a static
This isn't a problem in my case as I prefer a server to have a static IP!
But... the principle remains....
Anyway, look at the help the lovely people @ SuSE gave me...

Subject: Ticket 
You might wish to look at point 2 first.
1) You need to set the interface to dhcpclient (in yast ->
system administration ->network configuration ->base configuration)
You also need, (in yast -> system administration -> change configuration
file) to find and enable DHCLIENT.
While you are enabling DHCLIENT, you probably want to find and
disable NSCD. It caches nonanswers for name resolution and
prvents further lookups of those names for the life of the cache.
Finally, if you run
tail -100 /var/log/messages
and you see that no dhcp leases are offered by the NT box, it
may be because of the line
require subnet-mask, domain-name-servers;
Try commenting out that line.
2) Assuming your interface is coming up, you have entered the dns
ip in Yast (which puts it into /etc/resolv.conf) and your routing
is correct, it should work.
show eth0? If you ping another machine on the your net, and rerun
ifconfig, do you get an increase in both TX and RX packets? Do
you get an increase in errors? If TX and RX are substantially different,
the card may be misconfigured (wrong rate, etc) or there is a problem with
a hub. If errors are increasing, it is probably hardware (bad cable, etc)
If you run
you should be able to tell if your routing is correct. Perhaps your
netmask is incorrect and the dns server is not seen as being reachable.
If you continue to have a problem, I would like to see the output
of ifconfig, route -n and tail -100 /var/log/messages.
3) I am sorry, but email configuration is beyond the scope of installation
support. You might look at O'Reily's book on sendmail, the howto's
in /usr/doc or possibly another tranport agent (qmail, smail, postfix,
etc) that might be easier to set up.
