Debian Extremely Slow - When Not Connected

The first problem to overcome in the Switch To Debian was that startup is slow - Extremely so. 10 minutes of pain. But this only happens when NOT wired to my company's LAN.

Checking the syslogs, we found there were numerous DNS requests going out. We disabled DHCP, and the problem went away.

Now it fails quickly.
