Sorry to bother you, but the presence of this in ubuntu, didn't seem to 
do it for me, sadly. And instead of bitching about it, I provided a 
solution. Not the most beautiful one, but I'm not a ubuntu developer :).

But hopefully this 'presence' in ubuntu will work in the future, for 
peeps like me. Then hacks will be unneeded.

But with that issue cleared from my desk, I will now pursue a solution 
for my constantly disconneting eth0....a disconnect every 5 minutes is 
really annoying..... Maybe this also is solved, and me and my ubuntu 
just don't know about it :) I will see if I can apt my way out of this.
