While that's what netatalk does, that's not technically correct. ;-)

net 0 is reserved for "this net". While for any routed situation, and for
unrouted phase II we want any net 0 connections to go to the loopback
interface (which I think will then be caught by atalkd), for unrouted
phase 1, net 0 is the wire. :-)

Also, I think someone else made a correct comment that this really should
set the route to STARTUP_FIRSTNET, not 1.

Take care,
