For some number of boots, this is inevitable.

Networkless happens, sometimes intentionally.

This isn't the first time here mc has been deemed dispensible. This is why I
have deemed all live Ubuntu CDs dispensible. Broken networking and broken X
happen. I'm not wasting my time driving a car with no jack, and having to
hitch a ride back for another car on those infrequent occasions when I do get
a flat. I just start with a car smart enough to include the jack, like
Knoppix, and recommend others do the same.
