I re-installed the node. However, the DHCP request during the install timed  
out and failed. I ensured the Cluster was up and running and the  
avahi-daemon and avahi-publish processes were running.

I went ahead and re-installed using a static IP address to at least get the  
Node up. However, I'm back in the state where the Node is not accessable  
from the network again. The Node can ping out to the netowork, but it  
cannot be seen on the network to get in. I will try to massage the  
interfaces file like was done in bug 446023. I'll attach the bad interfaces  
file and a good one if I can get things working.

Just let me know if you want me to try anything specific to debug the DHCP  
failure during install.
