i.MX53 SABRE Ubuntu Boot up time long because of DHCP timeout

When I am booting up the i.MX53 SABRE tablet with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS I am noticing that most of delay during boot up is because of sending client DHCP request and waiting for the timeout to expire.  The exact message is (also see attachment):

Sending DHCP requests ...... timed out!

IP-Config: Reopening network devices...

eth0: Freescale FEC PHY driver [Generic PHY] (mii_bus:phy_addr=0:00, irq=-1)

Sending DHCP requests ...... timed out!


The boot time takes about 3 minutes 26 seconds.  Majority of the time, about 2 minutes is because of the DHCP timeout.  How can I modify this timeout to be on the order of 5-10 seconds instead of two minutes?
