up statically, we could possibly do that, or possibly just make the
necessary adjustments before booting the image.  What I was proposing, if
the image is already set up to dhcp by default, we could run a dhcp server
on the control node with the static ip assignments already in place for each
board. That way they always get the same address that we pre-allocated for
that board.  We'll also need to make sure that the control node has a valid
ip on both the internal and the external network.
