New securityonion-setup package available

I've packaged a new version of Setup that resolves a couple of issues:

Issue 436: sosetup-network: replace ifconfig with iproute2's ip tool
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=436
This patch from Jon Schipp updates sosetup-network so that it uses "ip" instead of "ifconfig".

Issue 441: sosetup-network shouldn't stop network-manager
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=441
The last release of sosetup added a new question to sosetup-network to allow you to modify /etc/network/interfaces and then have the choice to not immediately reboot. If you did this over "ssh -X" it would stop Network Manager which would drop your ssh connection before it could ask if you want to reboot. It should no longer try to stop Network Manager so you should see the final reboot question when running over ssh.

The version number of the new package is securityonion-setup - 20120912-0ubuntu0securityonion90 and it has been tested by the following (thanks!):
Scott Runnels
Matt Gregory
JP Bourget
