Thanks but that doesn't quite get me all the way there. I probably
should have been more clear that I'm making a combined
controller/compute all-in-one. To that end I needed to add a few
more enabled services (q-svc, q-meta, q-dhcp).

That got me to a completed run but I had no public network and as
far as I could tell the private network was not associated with any
interface. I dug around doing a few net-, subnet- and router-
creates but seemed to be missing a piece.

I raise the pay to virtual scotch.

What I hope to have at the end of this process is a nicely commented
local.conf that I can post somewhere for people who want a similar
