Yes. (Well, on checking it wasn't /etc/init.d/net.eth1 -> net.lo but
/etc/init.d/net.eth1 -> /etc/init.d/net.lo.  I've changed that but I
suspect it makes no difference having the path in the symlink)

No - but deliberately.  I think this may be where I, or the system is
confused.  Because unlike a desktop it's not just a matter of bringing
up the /etc/init.d/net.* scripts.  I don't want DHCP timeouts etc. when
booting off-line.

net.eth0 is brought up by netplug

net.eth1 is brought up by as I understand it, the ipw3945 module being
loaded which runs the ipw3945 daemon, which runs wpa_supplicant, which
runs the init script (maybe those last two steps are vice versa)

So, currently:
/etc/init.d/net.eth0 status
 * status:  inactive

(which is fine, the wire isn't plugged in)

/etc/init.d/net.eth1 status
 * status:  started

which is fine, but I want sshd and ntpd to have recognised this

In the end I want the services brought up when either or both of
net.eth0 or net.eth1 are started (by cables being plugged in or wireless
networks coming up etc.)

Thanks for the response,

W.
