Why can I only get DHCP data from the FastEthernet interface and not the Ethernet interface with my

Its been a while since I configured a Cisco router. We have built a lab in the office to test several products, one which includes a Cisco router. We are testing a 1760 out of the box and want basic functions. I installed the router and performed a no shutdown for both interfaces (FastEthernet0/0 and Ethernet0/0). I turned DHCP for both interfaces, but I can only get DHCP data from the FastEthernet interface and not the Ethernet interface. Please tell me what I need to do to get this problem fixed.
From your question, I am assuming that you want to get a DHCP assigned address to the interfaces. For that, 'IP address DHCP' is sufficient. If the DHCP server is on some other segment, then you need to give "IP helper-address dhcp_server_address" on the interfaces also. But if you want the router to act as a DHCP server, then here is a working configuration, which you can modify:

ip dhcp excluded-address ip dhcp excluded-address ! ip...

dhcp pool 1 network /16 domain-name test.com dns-server default-router netbios-name-server netbios-node-type h-node lease 30 !
