Can you update from CVS and try it out with the Barricade?  I've
reverted the DHCP code to creating and sending full ethernet frames, so
it should either work or be easier to track down the problem if it
doesn't work.  If you could, do a 'make clean', then './ --
prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc' then make and make install it, just to
make sure you've got updated DHCP code.
