Re: hardware profiles?
I thought netenv was used for different profiles (eg. home, office, other).

I have a Dell laptop I am endeavoring to put Debian on however I have a
query I'd like to get answered first. Does anyone know if there is a way of
handling multiple hardware profiles in Debian similar to the concept within
Windows? I ask because when I am at home I have the laptop docked which
means not only the PCMCIA ethernet port is present but also an ethernet card
within the port replicator is present. When I am at work only the PCMCIA
ethernet port is available. Does anyone see any problem with this? Any way
to handle the two configurations gracefully?
I can think of one if you like kernel modules:
Note: I don't know pcmcia-cs
Write a script that switches the /etc/modules files based on detecting the
docking port from whatever /proc file shows it. It really won't hurt
anything to have both loaded... Do you want to change other things based on
being un/docked? Do you use dhcp in both instances, what exactly do you
want to change based on the hardware available. In your example, you'll
have ethernet on both...
