Apparently I need to change the default route as the dhcp client is arping

out to itself as per the gw settings shown above, I need to add 

interface "rl0" { 
supersede routers 81.a.b.1; 
supersede subnet-mask 255.255.xxx.0; 

or something to the dhcpclient config file, 

Can this be done using the hard disk image? 

Thanks again for your help
