If your service uses a static IP it is easy.  'man interfaces'  for
info on what to put in /etc/network/interfaces.  To get ethernet up
you only need to figure out which kernel module to use, add it to
/etc/modutils/aliases  as  'alias eth0 <module name>',  add the
interface to /etc/network/interfaces, run 'ifup eth0'.

If your service uses PPPoE then you will have to find information
somewhere else, as I have no idea what you need to do with that.
