I'm not sure if this was the right way to do this but I found that since I
am not using networking I changed the default boot in etc/initab to 2
intead of the default 3.  Now the  'Grep not finding ifcong' is not
there.  However I still see the statment when it scrolls up during
shutdown.  I found the script that is related to.  One day I hope to
figure away around the script.
