And why would it not be when the network start is S10network?

Sounds like it may be time to see why your network isn't up and running. Note
that I am on a desktop here, so network manager, which has so far been the
cause of more network failures than all of my combined typu's ever have, is
NOT running and has been nuked from the system. But, even my lappy, which
uses DHCP, is getting started from S10network, NM has also been nuked there.

Cheers, Gene
