net/nonet selection


I have a system that every once in a while is hooked off the network, 
and must then be able to operate stand alone. 

How would i best switch and detect?

Currently i have a hack in /etc/rc.boot that tries to ping to a known host, 
and if that fails executes a `init 3'. I defined runlevel 3 to have none of the
networking routines (all network related S-links replaced by K-links). 

Is there a more elegant solution for Debian?
