[U-Boot-Users] U-Boot DHCP request does not time out.

Hi all,
I have question about U-Boot and its BOOTP/DHCP client capability.
We are using it to get the dynamic IP from DHCP server and it looks like it 
never times out if the network cable is not connected.
Our target has network connection as well as USB2.0 connection so we do not 
want it to hang just because it could not get a valid IP. Can I make it 
time out? Or is it better to let Linux handle DHCP stuff after it boots?

I'm currently using U-Boot-1.0.

If anybody has a pointer to how to setup DHCP client stuff properly in 
embedded Linux, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you.
