Fix for loosing VM eth0

In the newer images we are including a script called "" inside of the restore users directory. If eth0 is not showing up in your VM run the command: "sudo sh" from within the /home/restore directory. If this file is not included in the VM you have, create the file yourself with the following in it, and name it

#! /bin/bash
mac=`ifconfig -a | grep "HWaddr" | cut -d " " -f 11`
echo "eth0 mac $mac arp 1" > /etc/iftab

Reboot after running the script and eth0 should be back.
