Hrm, even if I told Yann to tell more, I am confused a bit. etc/hosts
should be allways written (forced call in write_common_network()) unless
you have choosen DHCP, DHCP was set up (use_dhcp=1) but the interface
were down while writting the files.

/etc/hostname may not be written if you did not run "Configure the
network" nor the "Configure hostname" steps successfully.
