Yes, I noticed problems with that originally too.
I found just ifconfig'ing the thing helped kick it into life.
But when I booted the 2.0G kernel, nothing would get it going.
Even manually ifconfig'ing it and attempting to ping just got me a 
'device timeout' of somesort.

Boot the 2.0E kernel and dhclient picked up an address straight away.
