1. Ethernet timeout: answering my own question

Some time ago, I asked how I could reduce the delay in bringing up eth0
when my laptop was not connected to a network. Well, the answer is
embarrassingly simple (at least for ppclinux 2000q4).

eth0 is brought up by ifup which tries to start pump; if that fails, it tries
dhcpd. pump has a configuration file in /etc/pump.conf. Here you can set both
the timeout for an operation on a device and the number of times to retry. I
simply set the timeout to be 15sec n /etc/pump.conf and commented out the
dhcpd line in ifup.
