Actually, I just did a "MAKEDEV all" on the 3.0 Qube and now dhclient 
seems to work okay. Must have been that "bpf device" thing mentioned 

Note that "works okay" means that I get an IP address; I still don't 
get a hostname automatically, something that also works when using the 
1.6 restore CD.

Shouldn't the "MAKEDEV all" be done as part of the automated 
installation? Rowdy, are you keeping track of this stuff or should I 
write everything I find up myself?
