switching between two network configurations

Hi List

With my laptop, I'd like to access two different networks (depending on where I am): My home network and university network. At home, my IP is and hostname shold be "horchloeffel", at university the IP and hostname are set to other fixed values. What I'd like to do is choosing at boot-time which network configuration to load. Is it possible to write a shell script that is invoked by a lilo parameter? It would have to set the hostname, the nameservers and the IP adress according to predefined values (should be simple to write two configurations, say /etc/hostname.uni and /etc/hostname.home, one of which is copied to /etc/hostname and so on).
Is this possible, or are there other (better) solutions for doing this task?
