Yes, that is the way I use to handle it with Warty on my iBook.  
However now with the nework settings GUI under Hoary the scripts
involved update the file and introduce another "auth eth1" when it has
been commented out.

The only way I have been able to accomplish manually
activating/deactivating on reboot is to check and uncheck the "This
device is configured" box under Properties.  This works, however, it
means I must manually select DHCP vs. Static IP, Network name (ESSID)
and etc each time.

It looks like the scripts should take into account the present state
of the Active vs. Deactivate buttons.
