Comments/Problems:

<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>
I performed 3-installations because of the symptoms. First install
 was edit /etc/.apt/sources.lst to testing or maybe strech; apt-get
 update; apt-get dist-upgrade. Symptoms: lost network on re-boot.  
 Connected monitor and keyborad. /sbin/ifconfig showed no wlan0 .
 ip a showed a long string wlx000272ac8d9b instead of wlan0. 
-ip link set wlx000272ac8d9b up; 
 iwconfig wlx000272ac8d9b mode managed essid beegeet key 1234567890;
 ifconfig wlx000272ac8d9b 192.168.1.109-
 route add defalut gw 192.168.1.1;
 brought up the network, which was then reachable  via ssh from
 a work station. This was left running for about a week. Since this
 proceedure seemed tedious to bring up the network, I proceeded to
 do a new from scratch network install.

 The 2nd install, a network install,  produced a seemingly un-useable 
 installation due to lack of network after reboot. This time no 
 /sbin/ifconfig; no /sbin/route. It looked to me like I had a badly
 broken installation without the utilities to bring up the network.

Suspecting a bad CF disk, I started a 3rd install, network install, 
with another CF card. Installed grub to CF card. Downloaded net boot
imaged files to CF card. Edited grub to boot images. Inserted into 
target machine. Proceeded with a mostly normal installation. However,
the detected network eth and wlan devices were listed as long strings,
e.g. wlx000272ac8d9b. (maybe this is normal?)Proceeded with nework 
install via the wireless usb device. Installed only ssh server and unilities. 

No network on reboot. No /sbin/ifconfig. No /sbin/route. After
consulting references on use of /sbin/ip, brought up network:
ip a # observer device name long string
ip link set wlx000272ac8d9b up
iwconfig wlx000292ac8d9b mode managed essid beegeet2 key 1234567890
ip a add 192.168.1.108/24 dev wlx000272ac8d9b
ip route add default via 192.168.1.1

Installation was now reachable from a workstation via ssh.

Further investigation revealed:

no /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules; no such file

After apt-get install net-tools , I was able to get the network 
to come up automatical with the following section in
/etc/network/interfaces:

auto wlx000272ac8d9b
allow-hotplug wlx000272ac8d9b
iface wlx000272ac8d9b inet static 
	address 192.168.1.108
	broadcast 192.168.1.255
	netmask 255.255.255.0
	gateway 192.168.1.1
	wireless-mode managed
	wireless-key 1234567890
	wireless-essid beegeet2
	wireless-channel 11

At this point I had a network after reboot. However, this not what I
would want on production system. Too much typing of long net device
name. I expect network device names like eth0 , wlan0 , etc.

The one pleasant surprise is that I did not have to apt-get install
any firmware for wireless devices after first boot.
