One quick fix for this I've found is to hit CTRL + C when the
"Configuring Network Interfaces" message comes up (in other words
killing the DHCP client).

This probably isn't the *best* solution, but it does make the boot
much quicker, and it doesn't seem to screw too much up. Although, I
haven't tried plugging into a network afterwards, you may need to
restart the DHCP client manually
