Summary: Interface does not come up

Dear managers,

thanks for the overwhelming response again. 
suggested to put the ifconfig line in the rc3.d directory. This most 
likely would have worked, since I could plump up the interface manually 
after reboot without a problem. However, most others recommended to use 
hostnames (versus ipaddresses) in /etc/hostname.XXX and have 
corresponding entries in /etc/hosts. It seems that the scripts that run 
at bootup get confused and do not plump up the interfaces automatically 
if they not not have a hostname for the ipaddresses.

Thanks a lot!
