I installed 1.5 on my VAXserver some days ago, and came across what
might be a bug in the installation script.

I did an ftpinstall from my linux machine, le0 is initialized
correctly and everything works fine. But when rebooting, I found
that /etc/ifconfig.le0 says: netmask 0xff000000 media eth

This gives an error, something like "wrong media subtype: eth".
Deleting everything after the netmask makes the interface come up

Is this a bug in the setup script?
