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
