DHCP client daemon autostart for both v4 and v6

modern versions of Redhat/centOS that include an ipv6-capable dhcp (ie, RHEL6/CentOS6) already come with init scripts that do this.  Just enable them via chkconfig or systemd (if you're using fedora).

I think you should make an script for do that on boot. Something like 

(this is on the script)
/etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp4 start 
/etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp6 start

This on your, I dunno, start.sh? Or something like that. And, if you're working with CentOS (or some other Red Hat base distro) you can do ir with chkconfig (chkconfig dhcp4 on || chkconfig dhcp6 on)

That should be the idea.

If the answer to this question has already been posted, I apologize for asking it again: How do I properly (and automatically at boot) start the DHCP client daemon twice, once for v4 and once for v6?  I have been unable to find an answer to this question anywhere.  Thank you in advance.
