[et-mgmt-tools] Two Minor Problems with Cobbler

I've been spending quite a bit of time with cobbler lately and have
run into two very small issues.  First, running cobbler sync with
manage_dhcp: 1 set drops an empty dhcpd.conf directory in the PWD.

[root at hemops2 ~]# cd /tmp/
[root at hemops2 tmp]# ls
[root at hemops2 tmp]# cobbler sync
sync distro: centos44
Shutting down dhcpd:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting dhcpd:                                            [  OK  ]
[root at hemops2 tmp]# ls

Second, I have two configuration changes I need made to
/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default. These have to do with NIC ordering and
a doc I found here:


There, it suggests making two changes to the pxe configuration, adding
the following lines:

APPEND ksdevice=bootif

I put a config file called default.pxe in /etc/cobbler and run cobbler
sync but I see a vanilla default file in
