Um, DHCP *is* the default, i.e., it asks if you want to use DHCP, and
the cursor is on the "yes" button, so if the user just hits return,
they get DHCP.  Thus it is the default.

Such issues may seem minor but they are easy to change and important
for users to get right.

Ah...  Maybe I should build another 2.2.6 set with this new netbase.

Watch out for the new apt (.17 I think) because that is broken for
building base.
