Speed up DHCP during boot

I am running ubuntu on a laptop, that contains a pci lan card and, from
time to time, wireless pcmcia.
Both devices are recognized during boot, but dhcp connection tests waste
a lot of time, if a device is not connected at all. If I am on wireless
only, f.e., the boot dhcp procedure takes a bout 10 seconds to ask for
ethernet dhcp, until it gives up. If I am on lan, and have'nt my
wireless card plugged in, the same happens asking for the wlan's dhcp.
Needless to say, there is never a need to have both connected. So
booting takes it's time asking for dhcp.
I don't know that behaviour from archlinux or linux from scratch,
therefore there should be a way to change it.
Any hint for me?
