I'm not willing to write the code to enable that unlikely scenario. If someone
else wants to, I wouldn't object. It seems like it would be rather
complicated as you would need to supply the IP address of the server at the
time that 'make-live net' is being invoked.

You only need to supply an IP address for the server in the case where
you /aren't/ using PXE enabled DHCP.
