I think I figured it out. I seem to have changed the incorrect field in config/binary.

It seems I needed to make


then run lh_clean
then lh_build

to make the live debian image use the static ip address.

it seems to take that and use it in the image now. However, the user has decided they need to be able to change that address at will and remember those changes for next boot, so I don't think I can use live debian for this application. He wants parts of the filesystem to be changeable, like for example, /etc. So I don't think this will cut it.

thank you,
