DHCP can only be checked for remote hosts (so far). The DHCP client
sends broadcasts to communicate with the server (it has to, since the
DHCP server will assign the IP), which means you can't check a DHCP
server on a different subnet.
I've tried hacking up a patch for that. You can try using the check_dhcp
found in the plugins-package at http://oss.op5.se/nagios
Read the --help output (or possibly the source-code). I don't remember
what options you need to specify off-hand.
Oh, and let me know if it works. :)
