Well, I guess this step should be included in Martin's base image then;
or at least a post-image-install step. Because once the HDD is back in
the Qube, you don't get the chance to edit files ... until you know the
MAC or IP and can ssh in ...

No, I missed the option of having a Qube that actually has a serial
console; the 2700 seems to have space on the IO board, but no
I now know what the MAC address is, nmap knows the Cobalt IANA
allocation and that makes it easy to find :-) but it wasn't labelled on
the case (it is now), and I couldn't find anything looking like an
address chip inside.
