Heh, normally, but you haven't seen what he have in store for the new 
net-setup script.  ;)  It will also setup ppp devices such as modems, 
gprs modems, wlan devices, and anything else we can fit.  For modems and 
gprs devices we already have to edit files (such as /etc/ppp/pap-secrets 
and/or /etc/ppp/peers/dialout, et al) to get this to work, so doing the 
same in the net-setup script with dialogs --form's for the values should 
not be too terrible.

Just my $0.02 though, and I am open to other ideas.  :)
