Troubleshoot DHCP

A new snag with my updating script ... and a solution!

The script that I wrote (with a lot of help from the LQ crew) has worked exceptionally well. It is fast (download speed being the limiting factor), secure (it checks md5sums and GPG signatures), and fails in a sane way if something goes wrong.
