With DHCP, where does one find their IP, nameserver and gateway addresses?

While you can do it many ways, such as shutting down the interface and 
starting it up again, the equivalent way is to use dhclient.

to release the lease:
dhclient -r eth1 

to renew:
dhclient eth1

Note that DHCP does not require a release to do a renew.

Check man dhclient for more.
