When you say ".../networks" you mean "/etc/networks" - right? Why is
the system sensitive to domain names in that file? Is it because it
forces a DNS lookup and named hasn't started yet?

I did that. All of the variables are getting assigned properly.

I've found a kludge - added a sym-link from /etc/rc?.d/S99network to
I'm going to try one of the other suggestions I got about adding an
ifconfig to the end of /etc/init.d/network to see if the interface is
up at that time. Maybe it's as you suggested that an improperly
configured file is preventing the interface from loading, maybe it's
getting loaded and then brought back down.
We'll see later this after noon.
Thanks for your time.
