Good call... I just blindly typed in dhcpd (someone else mentioned 
that in another post) without thinking.  On a debian-based box, you 
almost certainly *don't* want that package installed... I learned the 
hard way after accidentally installing it.  Much hair pulling ensued 
that day...  And I'm almost positive that Ubuntu uses the packages 
you mentioned (at least the last time I used it).
