Does anyone know why this happens?

One thought I had is that if the i386 box (that had been running the
restore CD) is powered off before the /etc/ifconfig.tlp0 is created to
assign a fixed IP address to the Qube/Raq, and without another DHCP
server on the network, the appliance would not be able to find an IP

But there are too many reports of it happening apparently straight after
the installation, and most ppl probably would not have had the
time to turn off the i386 box.

Is it worth it, does anyone think, to pre-create a /etc/ifconfig.tlp
with a class C IP address like (or any other reasonable
default)?  Would that cause more problems than it solves?
