Re: Which bootup script brings up interface 'lo'

Under potato (2.2) the standard scheme is this:

 .  the script `networking' is run at boot time

 .  `networking' calls `ifup' (cf the manpage) which actually brings
     up and configures the various interfaces

 .  the behaviour of `ifup' (and its first cousin `ifdown') is in turn
    controlled by the values specified in the file:
    which usually contains lines like these:

        iface lo inet loopback
