[Dnsmasq-discuss] dhcpoffer's not being accepted?

I have a new RH ES 4 box I'm trying to bring online.

It's setup for dhcp and I see my dnsmasq receiving the requests in the messages (syslog) on that host.  It also says it's replying with DHCPOFFER's of valid IP addresses.  But for some reason the RH box refuses to bring up eth0 -- it's apparently not receiving the DHCP replies or it doesn't like the format of them or something???

I don't see this occur with my windoze clients.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot?  I can find my way around Linux pretty well, so if you have some places to look and/or debug settings for client or server side of the DHCP that would help.

Maybe there's one or more of the dnsmasq settings I should tweak?  I have the dhcp-authoritative set to TRUE (as it applies), but could it be causing an issue?

Please, please help?
