    Hmm. I just looked in /etc/init.d, and there's a network script that sets
up the loopback connection:

#! /bin/sh
ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1
route add -net 127.0.0.0

    I see an entry in /etc/network/interfaces for this but it's commented out.
So, if it's supposed to be done in /etc/network/interfaces, what's this
network script for? 

    Mike
