Aloha Gurus,

I run FreeBSD servers and desktops and now I have an HP Mini 1000 netbook with Ubuntu OS. I know some of you have worked with Linux. There are little or no manuals or on HP site instructions. I even called HP support and I knew more than they did. Gary Klein on our FreeBSD list
gave me some pointers and I have setup the /etc/network/interfaces :

The manual connection works OK for my ATM circuit wired network, now I want to set a second network config for my LAN wireless. Any body on Luau had experience with a wired network link. I want to set it up manually so I don't lose the wired settings for when I am on the ATM circuit. Using the helper apps on the Netbook is not an option as it doesnt seem to play nice with more than one config. I am trying to set up the wireless so I can use either it or the wired link, obviously not both. With out losing either configuration.

Also I want to know if it can be setup to work in a Starbucks configuration with DHCP again with out losing the existing configs.

Note: Using the autoconfig helper destroys everything existing if you use it. I am used to command like setups for networks not the GUI point and click.

Any help appreciated.
