my success (admittedly with rh9) was to boot the machine without a card
installed, copy the ifcfg-eth0-location file to ifcfg-eth0, insert the
card, and then '/etc/init.d/network start'. a crude work-around but it
worked for me.

Subject: [TriLUG] using dhcp with a wireless card
I am using a wireless card--Orinoco silver--with Suse 9.1. I have it set
restricted at home with a 64 wep key. I am trying to set it at the
university without overwriting my home settings. Everything seems to
fine, but when I do #dhcpcd eth0, the card shuts down. For some reason I
cannot make dhcp to work. I have registered the card with the dhcp
at UNC, so it provides an ip--I can see that it assigns one in Windows.
Does any one knows how to configure two different setting in two
places using dhcp?
Thanks in advance...
