When deploying a Windows XP image, esx.pm fails before windows finishes
starting up.  Timing the log to the VM, the code reaches "TRY 25" and throws
a failure right before it enters in the windows license. However, networking
doesn't start until after this portion, so it will never get an IP
address.   It took our Windows VM ~3-4 min to get the networking up.

seconds, waiting for computer to DHCP. Try 1

Changing esx.pm to sleep for 30 (originally 5) fixed this issue and it
continued on to the SSH portion.
