[ale] DHCPD conf file

Not the problem.

The main problem is that if the eth0 connection drops and comes back up
then Ubuntu will run dhclient on that interface.  Dhcpd sees this and

I think that telling dhcpd to ignore will not work because dhclient will
configure the address as a 169.......  It may be best to just feed
dhclient the correct info.
