    Default Persistent usb, /etc/network/interfaces overwritten

    Just a quick tip. Bringing it up because I couldn't find a good solution from googling around.

    After following one of the many posts on persistent usb installs, I would lose my changes to /etc/network/interfaces on reboot (it would revert to the default contents).

    Based on some brief poking at initrd.gz (scripts/casper-bottom/23networking), it seems you can fix this behaviour by adding "STATICIP=frommedia" to grub's menu.lst. So the relevant entry on my USB stick now looks like:

    title            Start Persistent Live CD
    kernel          /boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper persistent rw quiet vga=0x317 STATICIP=frommedia
    initrd           /boot/initrd.gz
    Not sure if there's a better way to do this, but it seems to be working.
