I am not to reason why... my job is to install new machines for this setup. Not 
that many, but enough that I started looking into that whole preseed thing.

As the installer doesn't support hostroutes, I guess I'll have to run a command 
to set the routes. The late_command is just the right thing to modify the 
interfaces file on the target; however, in order to set the hostroute *during* 
installation I need to run a command immediately after netcfg -- how do I do
