The option is for linuxrc. It normally uses v2 via udp. The above changes that
to v3 and tcp.

'ps' shows you whether dhcpcd is running. If not, just start it.

BTW, in 10.1 some network tools are available for debugging at this point.
You can pick up a beta mini boot-CD from if you want to try it.
(You will need to boot with rootimage=/boot/root if you are using it with a
10.0 setup, but apart from that it will work fine.)
