Again, I would try doing a dhclient by hand in debug mode and see what
happens. If you have an ethernet address on eth0, then it shows that your
dhclient worked. You may need to further configure your dhclient. Not being
familiar with the PPC, you need to make sure that dhclient is sending the
correct MAC address (eg. ethernet address) to the dhcp server.
