Why do you say that Tomas? I've been using it precisely because the early 
versions of network mangler could not be removed without emasculating 
the whole system, AND it couldn't find a dhcpd server with both hands 
even if it was nailed to its ass. So it would tear down a working 
network config and leave you stuck.

My address xxxx = hostname based home network, several machines, Just 
Works(TM).  So I sit here and wonder why an estimated 50% of the posts 
here are network failures. But I got tired of advising how to make it 
Just Work(TM) and being called an idiot for doing so. So I sit, read, 
and chuckle.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
