Question:  10.3. INET: Warning: old style ioctl... called!

You are trying to use the old network configuration utilities. The new ones can be found on (source only, I'm afraid).

Note that they cannot be used just like the old-style programs. See the NET-2 HOWTO for instructions on how to set up the old-style networking programs correctly. Even better, see the NET-3 HOWTO and upgrade your networking software.
