Josh - Network.opts has precedence, but if it is not configured (e.g.,
if it has not been touched), then ifup is executed and
/etc/network/interfaces is used. Look at the end of the network.opts
The /etc/pcmcia/network script and the network.opts file is the old way

don't think that you will need remove the eth0 line from interfaces, but
you can try it if nothing else seems to work.
