	Something is misconfigured.

	Your dhcpd log (see /var/log/messages on the RHEL box where
	your dhcpd is running) may help you identify what it is.
	If the repeated DHCPDISCOVER entries aren't showing in the log,
	you'll need to look to your network (routers, firewalls ...).

	If you still need assistance after checking all that, anyone on
	the list who has time and is minded to help will need the 
	following information:

	- your network topology,
	- your dhcpd configuration, and
	- your dhcpd log.

	Best regards,
