[parisc-linux] Irritating console message in 0.9.2 iso

I wiil add that this is a effective fix although quick and dirty. 

But first, you must stop the message by shutting down the dhcp client. 

Running "/etc/init.d/dhcp-client stop" as root will stop the messages from
displaying on the console immediately. 

Then, you can remove the dhcp-client startup scripts if you like.

An alternative solution to this problem is to change line 17 in
/etc/init.d/dhcp-client from "grep -q" to "grep -v -q" to prevent the dhcp
client from starting when the machine is rebooted.

to the errata, which I believe will solve your problem.
