Is it possible that the DHCP server is only willing to give out IP
addresses to certain machines (based on MAC address for example), and
isn't willing to give out addresses to any machine that you might
decide to plug into the network?

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
