I went ahead and installed wicd from backports. I've tested the
connection swapping and it will request and receive an address
automatically (DHCP here) no problem so far. Here is how I did it.
Add this entry to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib
then get the key to verify the packages.
# apt-get install debian-backports-keyring
# aptitude update
# aptitude -t lenny-backports install wicd
To keep it automatically updated add/create /etc/apt/preferences with this
Pin: release a=lenny-backports
Some other options can be found here.
Hope this helps out.
