DHCP VMkernel port in VMware ESX 4

Have you noticed that VMware ESX 4 now provides an option to use DHCP for a VMkernel port?  Using DHCP is probably not going to be a best practice for most environments, but it sure is convenient for quick, temporary vSphere setups.  Nice.

    This is also a GREAT feature for Isolated vSwitches without pNICs associated with them for testing.
