Description of problem:
Network card failed to use DHCP to set up address due to incorrect status
returned by mii-tool.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change from manual IP addresses to DHCP on eth0
2. /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S10network restart
Actual Results: Error message indicates "no link", then [FAILED].
Actual output from mii-tool was...
eth0: 10 Mbit, half duplex, no link
Expected Results: Expected [OK] from start up script, no diagnostic
Actual output from mii-tool should indicate 100 Mbit, link active, ....

This is fixed in that the initscripts don't use mii-tool anymore as of 6.11-1;
it is not reliable enough.
