Local vs. Networked bootup

It seems that there is no easy way to tell Slackware weather to use

Here's how I solved this:

- modify lilo.conf so it has two linux bootup.  One with "append = 5"
  and one with "append = 3"

- modify rc.M to detect the runlevel and copy the appropriate password
  and group file into place

- modify rc.M to detect the runlevel and run rc.inet* if the runlevel
  is 5

If anyone else has another solution please let me know.  Mine is very

1. Clustering - Network Speed vs Local Bus Speed

hiya - i've read that most of the people & organizations doing serious
clustering with linux are using gigabit ethernet on the backplane. how does
gigabit, speed-wise, compare with the speed of the local bus. just for the
sake of argument, we're talking about your average x86 box, maybe with a
133-200mhz bus speed. i'm sure it's slower than the local bus, but wondering
how much slower & how much of a bottleneck it creates? take it a step
further, how would 100mbps ethernet compare with the local bus? would it be
proportionately 10x slower than gigabit, or are there any other factors?
