If you are looking for location-dependant network settings, look at
intuitively (available in woody).

If you are looking for ethernet hardware config such as speed and/or
duplex state, search the archives of this list or of linuxppc-dev; there
has been some talk about that issue lately. IIRC, there have been some
mods by BenH to make the GMAC driver compatible with ethtool and/or

Thanks, both to you and BenH.  I was more or less looking for at least
