Don't mark the interfaces as activate on boot.

Subject: [lug] minor boot message question

When the ethernet card is installed in my laptop's pccard slot, it is 
seen as eth0. 
When the wireless card is installed it is seen as eth1. 

On boot, I get messages about failures bringing up whichever one is not 
installed. This seems ... inelegant.

Is there a good place to tweak under /etc so that it will only try to 
bring up the interface whose hardware is present? Complaining if both 
are missing would be neat, but not necessary.
