I needed to add the line
auto eth0
to /etc/network/interfaces to bring up this interface on a restart from the
command line.

Sorry for the noise

I occasionally need to switch my ethernet cable to a direct (ADSL)
connection rather than going through the corporate filrewalls (or not as the
case might be :-). With windows the configuration of eth0 it update
automatically when I switch cables, with various linuxes it may be update
automatically otherwise /etc/init.d/network restart accomplishes this
With Ubuntu 5.10, first there is no /etc/init.d/network, it seems to ahve
been replaced by /etc/init.d/networking and secondly this does not bring up
eth0. I am left with just lo0. A reboot with the same cable connected brings
the system up on the non-corporate n/w.

Any ideas how I can accomplish automatically or at least without reboot?
