DHCP as default

Hi,
maybe it would be a good idea to set DHCP as default for eth0 in the 
mini-rootfs images? It would simplify things for newcomers, especially when 
ARMed Slack is installed on devices without having a console.

Maybe but it's not like you can just boot the mini root filesystem
and start having fun: the README includes a whole bunch of things
that need doing prior to being able to boot into it -- fstab being
the main one.

Still, no harm either way. The next miniroot will have DHCP enabled by
default and the README file updated to make this known.
