Hmm. I couldn't parse where to enter a host name. I managed to get DHCP
config'd, however. At one point I was getting a weird entry in
client-hostname in /var/db/dhcpd.leases but it seems to have cleared up
now without my having changed anything. It probably tranlated to something
in a Japanese character set.

A RAM disk shows up as a block device, doesn't it?
Would anyone have any interest in writing a stand-alone app to configure
the broadband adapter? I've yet to make the leap beyond some minor shell
and perl scripting so I'd only be helpful in testing, etc.
