Hmm.  You may be right about that.  At home, I use /etc/hosts to resolve
names on my local net, so I keep copying that over to new installs, but
I've been using DHCP to assign fixed IPs based on MAC addresses since I
figured out how to do it (almost since I *had* a home network of more than
one machine), so I must have misremembered.
