Hah! Of course. There are some foundations in 0.6 (DHCP, UDP, ICMP bits) but not enough hardware support and it's not ready to be featured yet, so it's disabled by default for now. Hopefully there'll be at least telnet and FTP clients in the next couple of releases, at least for proof-of-concept sake.

Don't get me started on networking RFCs. What a way to spend a weekend.

(Symantec pays me to work on Veritas Volume Manager during the week -- Linux paritioning and root disk encapsulation, that's me).
