Some people put a lot of effort in the artwork and I'd say it looks good.
I'll turn it off when I need to but it's nice to have otherwise.

I've already taken those steps for this situation.  Like I said, the term
"Bringing up interface eth0" is from the text boot.

Maybe just binding the NIC to its MAC address is all that is needed so

I'm not exactly sure what this is/does, but in system-config-network, I
double click on the eth0 device, go to the "Hardware Device" tab, and "bind
to MAC address" is already checked.  Is this what you mean?  Sorry, some of
my command-line expertise is lacking--particularly in the network domain.
