I have found that if icmp is blocked the dhcp server will not issue a lease.
Typically a dhcp server will send out a icmp ping out before issuing a lease.
Have you allowed icmp from yast2 when enabling the firewall?

Running 9.2 with all updates. I'm trying to get a dhcp
server running along with SuSEfirewall2. The dhcp
server will run and issue ip info to my test boxes.
but when i turn on the firewall the dhcp server can't
issue anymore leases. I've tried configuring the
firewall with yast2 and editing
/etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall script all to know avial.
Any info would be thankful.
