I have a home setup similar to yours - a WAP acting as a firewall,  
dhcp from a linux server.  I have a spare laptop running CentOS, so  
I'll give it a check tonight to see if mine runs.

Q1: to you have DHCP giving a static address to your laptop based  
upon it's MAC?

Q2: have you tried this with the PVM 3.4.4 RPMs (I think you  
mentioned you were running 3.4.5)?
