Sunday Rawhide on Intel DG33BU: It's the Ethernet, mates

Sunday's Rawhide 64 is still slower than a mole in granite on an
NFS install using the motherboard's builtin gigabit ethernet.

I disabled the motherboard ethernet and installed a PCI ethernet
card.  Rawhide installed normally in forced text mode.

When the installed sysytem booted, the X server came up
and briefly displayed "choose a tool".  This display
disappeared after a second or so, never to come back.
I saw the same behavior yesterday on an AMD system.
