Just as a quick update, in the near future the use of plnode.txt will
be reduced to containing the node key and node id. Only for backwards
compatibility with older bootcds will it include the prior
information (ip addresses, dns, etc.).
What we are doing now is directly at bootcd creation time writing out
the appropriate ifcfg-* files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
This way we should be able to more cleanly support wireless, ppp,
pppoe, vlans, bonding, etc.
