This is the important part - you are trying to get your IP address
and other information using DHCP, but the system is not finding a
DHCP server on that network connection.

Could you describe the network that eth1 is connected to? Are you
using this Linux box to share an Internet connection with the local
network? If so, are you running a DHCP server for the local network
on this Linux box? It sounds like you may need to reconfigure eth1
to use a static IP address.
