 I don't know, as I do not have a timestamped log.  I will add a
 timestamping facility and rerun the test tomorrow.
 I should also mention that when the machine netboots, it gets the
 address using DHCP at the PXE and tftpboot stages, and
 then in sysinst, it is statically configured with the same address it
 previously got using DHCP.  Could this be confusing DAD somehow?
 This is a dedicated network segment with only the server (
 and the machine being installed on, so there should be no possibility
 of address conflicts with third parties.
