I think a lot of users believe the killing the dhcp client brings down the 
interface. I did not give it any thought until testing the scripts.  The 
test I ultimately used to finalize the scripts was to drop to runlevel 2 
from 3.  By LFS definition, the network must be down. There is no kill 
sendsignals in this level (it would be too destructive).  I believe I also 
found the ./network stop failed to clear the pid on dhcpcd.  Multiple dhcp 
NICS is an issue that I need to look at.

Moving K90network to K49network is my mailing list solution and will 
probably be a FAQ for eliminating the warning, my problem with putting it 
in the book is the question of how much warning.  For example, do we need 
to let them know that the next time they upgrade bootscripts, they will 
have two Kxxnetwork's.
