I'm full of hope since at least one year.. ;) Should I really wait??

Alright. But when's the optimal point-in-time during base-config?

Yes, the dhcp server was down when I booted the machine, so it couldn't find a
single computer on the network. But I did not know how to bring up eth0 after
boot had completed.

Cool!! I always thought it has to be something like this but was obviously
looking in the wrong places for it (I found a lot of interesting stuff but not
this.. Murphys law..)

Thanks a lot!! Always tried with "man network". No luck..

Well, thanks again for your instructive answer, all the best,
