Thanks a bunch for that tip. I was having DNS issues, but hadn't yet gotten to the bottom of it, and this turned out to be the cause of one of my major issues.

I've left cloud init active and seem to be able to set the hostname fine.
Am I missing something - or is cloud init a. more or less, minor issue?

I think I've already got this set.
All in all, very helpful info.
I haven't had a lot of time to tinker today, so we'll see how far I get tomorrow.
I'm very grateful for all the pointers, but special thanks for Micha!
[And, not wanting to start any flame-wars here but, I'm not so thrilled about systemd either. But I'll probably have to learn to live with it.]
