DHCP is handy because it will automatically set up the default route
and external nameserver. I let the router use DHCP to automatically
assign an address in the its normal range, but then I assign static
addresses in another subnet using aliases. I configure the alias in
/etc/network/interfaces, but the dhclient.conf file provides another
way to define aliases.
