Almost everything using a LANCE ethernet chip seems to
refer to it as 'leX' where X is the number of the interface.

Hence 'le0'. But there's no device for it in '/dev'. 

Make sure that '/etc/hosts' is setup correctly, and then
create the files 'hostname.le0' and 'myname', so that
networking gets configured correctly when the system
goes multi-user.
