Documentation is out of date. After the port number should be
off | none
on | any
dhcp | bootp | rarp
I usually use 'on' or 'any' to cause the autoconfig to happen.

If you run a dhcp server (which I do), all you need is 'ip=any'.
If you are really doing the configuration with all of those options
on the command line, you have to use 'off' after the port
identifier or it will try to contact a server using one of the
configured protocols (dhcp, bootp. rarp) to get the information.
