Security Update got your network down?

I installed the latest OS X Security Update for 10.2.6, and Airport 3.1 and rebooted. Networking was dead. The System Pref panels were dead.

After dorking around for awhile, Curt suggested I delete:

/private/var/db/SystemConfiguration/preferences.xml

I did, and also

/private/var/db/SystemConfiguration/com/apple.airport.preferences.xml

Rebooted. All of my networking prefs were gone (yay) so I reset them to DHCP and it lives.

Thanks, Curt!
