OK, I admit it - I messed up. At first when I decided to switch to
DHCP I also switched NM on (it was disabled since I was originally
using a static address). When I did this I *think* that I got a valid
ip and gateway. I've now switched back to s-c-network but with DHCP -
rebooted and eth0 won't come up (DHCP failed).
One other data point - I rebooted with Kubuntu Live and no problems
with network at all.
