Is there time to make sure that dhcp is in base_2_2.tgz then? Just to avoid
the chicken and egg problem if you replaced your only other OS :-).
Or are we too late?

the freeze is tomorrow, so maybe ...

I would also like hfsutils in the base system since there is no way to make a newworld mac bootable without it. (if you have replaced macos and do not/cannot use bootx that is)
