Anyone know how to set to use DHCP with Revolution?

If I drag the Network Scripting file in Mac OS 9 to the Script Editor, I get 
a whole Applescript dictionary of commands to control the user's Networking 
preferences.   What I'd like to do is somehow get Revolution to talk to 
Applescript to then set the user's Network control panel to use DHCP.   
Perhaps there's a way to get Revolution to access this directly?

I've found the Network Scripting dictionary to be very confusing.   Is there 
a Networking guru on this list who can tell me what the secret commands are 
within that dictionary to set the user's network control panel to DHCP?   
Here's the vast array of commands:


Class TCPIP v4 configuration: A TCP/IP v4 configuration
Plural form:
     TCPIP v4 configurations
Elements:
     router address by numeric index, as a range of elements
     name server address by numeric index, as a range of elements
     search domain by numeric index, as a range of elements
Properties:
     <Inheritance>  configuration   -- See the class “configuration” for 
more properties
     connecting via  Ethernet/MacIP/PPP   -- the port or connection method of 
this configuration...
     connecting via  string   -- ...or a port name   (may be locked)
     configuration method  BootP/DHCP/MacIP manual/MacIP 
server/manual/RARP/PPP server   -- the configuration method of this 
configuration (may be locked)
     IP address  string   -- the IP address of this configuration (may be 
locked)
     subnet mask  string   -- the IP subnet mask of this configuration (may 
be locked)
     implicit search start  string   -- the implicit starting search domain 
of this configuration (may be locked)
     implicit search end  string   -- the implicit ending search domain of 
this configuration (may be locked)
     DHCP client ID  string   -- applies only if the configuration method is 
DHCP (may be locked)
     MacIP server zone  string   -- only applies if ‘connecting via’ is 
MacIP (may be locked)
     uses IEEE8023  boolean   -- Does this configuration use the 802.3 
protocol? (may be locked)
     protocol  TCPIP v4   [r/o]   -- the protocol of this configuration (the 
constant ‘TCPIP v4’)
     administration password  string   -- the password of this configuration 
(write only)
     user mode  basic/advanced/administration   -- the user mode of this 
configuration
