The strange thing is I **think** avahi-daemon was installed
**before** KDE desktop was put on the machine. What I find strange is
that Aptitude removed it when it wasn't installed as part of KDE.
Removing it was one thing - the network broke when the boot scripts
called a script that's apparently part of the avahi-daemon package. Then
DHCP stopped running, I guess because of the errors the boot script
returned. I find the whole scenario utterly confusing.
