It should exactly do this. However, if you only have one network interface
netconfig just uses this one. If the interface starts with eth or pcmcia
it aks if you want to use DHCP otherwise it justs starts the old manual

I'm not sure if the PCMCIA network settings are properly written to the
newly installed system as PCMCIA uses a different file
(/etc/pcmcia/network.opts) than the "normal" interfaces. I'll try to fix
the PCMCIA network configuration in the next days.
