I *am* using busybox, but didn't bother to build in ifconfig since the
network configuration is all handled on boot by the kernel. :)

I suppose that I could rebuild it with ifconfig/route included, but that
just encourages me to mess with the network setup.  No sense making these
thin-client-type machines any easier to mess with than neccesary... ;)

--Danny, not looking forward to making X work on these machines
