Dhcpcd is not Dhcpd

In rc.conf, if you configure like this:

interface=eth0 address= netmask= gateway=

(Please let these 4 item, stick together)

On system start, the dhcpcd program will auto start at the Network Step.

The dhcpcd will start in rc.conf network daemon.(Please see network for detail. It is a Shell Script)

ps -ax

710 ?        Ss     0:00 dhcpcd -q eth0

So, you need not add dhcpcd daemon(there is not a dhcpcd daemon in /etc/rc.d dir, The dhcpcd is in network daemon).
