Test it on dhcp AND dhcpd for both shutdown and going from runlevel 3 to 
runlevel 2 and back and post the results.

The goal is to have generic instructions.  Modifing the instructions for one 
program's deficit seems confusing from an educational standpoint.  The 
archive are clear that moving the network shutdown in the rc.0 and rc.6 
directories will clean up this "error".  DJ's hint is even clearer.

As to the "error" message, it isn't, it's an "attn" message, which should be 
clear to the user as to what happened. (I'm using lfs-dev's definition of a 
user)  Fot those it isn't clear to, they need to understand it, if they are 
going to get educational value from the experience.  As a parallel, we 
don't try to eliminate the compiler 'warnings'.
