Don't know about his situation but one place the concept is a real killer is 
when you ship an installed disk to a remote location to be plugged into a new 
identical box.  Even on the times when I knew the MAC addresses and tried to 
preconfigure them, something would generally rename my prepared ifcfg-* files 
and generate new ones with an unwanted DCHP setting on the first boot.
