I haven't know these before... This sounds handy.

My default network manager configuration though only gets activated after user
login. Does a nm configuration as you propose enable network before the user
logs in?

The short answer is "yes". :-)


@Andi: Doesn't the way Klaus describes possible usage scenarios of Network Manager provide guidelines for approaching NetworkManager setup on Skolelinux?

To me it's sounds like we should keep network-manager and use the approach Klaus provided?!?


PS: As I experience PGP signature issues with my Horde Webclient on mailing list postings... Could someone using PGP mail to me privately, if my signature is broken on this mail? THANKS!
