Bug#39439: boot-floppies: network configuration not available as its own module

Package: boot-floppies
Version: N/A
Severity: wishlist

During system installation, the user is asked to enter some system data
like host name, IP address, netmask. This information is then used to
directly write some files like /etc/hosts, /etc/networks and /etc/init.d
networks (netconfig.c).

Thus, it is not possible to configure the network at a later time with
the support of an automatic mechanism because dinstall is only available
during the installation.

I feel that it would be a good idea to move this part of the configuration
out of dinstall into a separate program that can be called after system
