Summary0000159: Document how to set up common networking files
DescriptionExamples of a static, static with default route set, and DHCP configuration, and
an explanation of the common elements seems to be needed:

18:58 gpled> under floppy.img shell, i have an eth0. which works with my dhcp
              server. after booting with my new system, i no longer have eth0
18:58 gpled> any ideas?
19:01 @lancelan> I think you may need to set up the configuration for it ...
19:01 @lancelan> I had to ...
19:03 gpled> module.conf?
19:11 @lancelan> no - probably ccopy the default dhcp script in
                 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and call is ifcfg-eth0
19:12 @lancelan> I cant remember what the template is called but ut does have
                 'dhcp' in it
19:12 @lancelan> you may also need to edit it ...
19:12 @lancelan> to change the interface name to eth0
