I'm not sure, whether this is actually an error message. It looks more
like an informational one to me ... (tho' I have to guess on the
meaning of 'bt' ..)

I'd try this:

sysv-rc-conf networking off

more on that:

But I'm not sure, because I just realized my networking routines, here
on Debian/unstable, seem to react weird:

# ifdown eth0
ifdown: interface eth0 not configured

But when running 'ifconfig', eth0 still is showing up ... 

so you might want having a look to the scripts in /etc/init.b/ or in
/etc/rcX.d if the 'sysv-rc-conf' incantation does not help ...
