Issue with LDAP and DHCP, any ideas?

When using LDAP and DHCP, it fails to get a DHCP lease frequently and
login is unbearably slow because pam spending its time waiting for it to
time-out trying to reach the LDAP server.
NOTE: I modified my interfaces file to include both eth0 as well as lo
(by default it only has lo). Now, if I don't use ldap, then I can log in
using a local user and then once I log in, it tries to do a DHCP request
that works most of the time. Also, when I do sudo /etc/networking
restart it takes for ever and never recieves a dhcp response. I know
that you are thinking there must be something weird about my dhcp
server, but back when I had an older version of Kubuntu running, it
worked fine. Any ideas anyone?
I'm using Kubuntu 8.04 amd64
