If the exact version you use is dhcp-3.0.5-31.el5_8.1
then it could be https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=851333

I did a quick packet capture, and the only obvious thing I see is option 50 is requesting the self assigned 169.254.x.y address. Seems like this shouldn't matter at all. Is there a known bug with the old 3.0.5 dhcpd, or is there another reason the server is simply not responding to those discovers?
