My new neighbor has a older Gateway computer ELP 500C. He has three 
windows computers hooked to a hub and uses a ambit cable modem. He 
replaced one of the windows computers with a ubuntu computer. So far he 
cant get the machine to receive a IP address.

He tried:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart  with returned command not found.
sudo dhclient  returned: DHCPDISCOVER and then after about three minute 
wait DHCPOFFERS receivd no working leases in persistened database - 

When he removes this ubuntu computer and connect his Windows computer, 
the windows computers gets a ip right away.
