that's odd... for everything in my lan, i don't have to do anything,
knoppix figures it all out and automatically does dhcp.  what do you have
giving out dhcp addresses, anyway?

that's really odd that this file wasn't there.  are you sure you have 
the ifupdown package installed?  try 

$ dpkg -L ifupdown

if it outputs a list of files, then it's probably installed.  if it isn't,
try installing it.  also, just to clarify, you aren't typing those # and $
characters, right?
