re from Tom:
I assumed you wanted to do it all manually. You could also try
NetworkManager if you're not averse to that GUIs. Basically just
remove/comment any reference to the cards you want NetworkManager to
manage from /etc/network/interfaces, and then make sure it's running
it'll take care of it all for you.
Tom, NetworkManager seems to be my problem: I set up /etc/resolv.conf
with the appropriate servers and then things work; next time I reboot,
resolve.conf contains only the internal IP address of my router;
Something is over writing my config file, I assume it must be
NetworkManager and I certainly didn't ask it to do so!
Am I right in assuming that the GUI network manager is in fact
NetworkManager? Perhaps I can just turn it off so it's not "helping"
me. The kind of help it's providing I can do without! But ofcourse it
would be nice to figure out what's really  happening and correct the

Cheers, Tom
