Re: Network (re-)setup after the first HD reboot possible?

IMO one could proceed like this (and I think this could be added to
mainstream b-f and base-config):

If no network configuration is done by boot-floppies base-config
notices (perhaps by checking for /etc/hostname) then base-config asks
if the user wants to configure the network.  There is already the
'etherconf' package which could be used to do the configuration.
