The simple fix is to add "[ uname -r|cut -d. -f1-2 == '2.0' ] && " before
this line; that will force it to only run on 2.0 kernels.  (If you use a
kernel before 2.0, you deserve what you get, IMHO.)

In my (limited) experince, that probably isn't related.  I can't help here;
I don't have a network to be on (other then ppp, and that dosn't count).

If your /etc/init.d/network is the same as the one in
/usr/doc/sysvinit/examples/, then don't bother fileing a bugreport.
Otherwise, if you can figure out where it came from, you should probably do
so.  This is a well-known problem on this list; that it has a simple fix
that isn't there is silly (IMHO, naturaly).
