Good idea, using an if statement would be an excellent choice here.

PPP has nothing todo with this, no? ethnet is for your network card(or
general Ethernet?). I would prefer to have ppp run as it's own script, but
either way LFS doesn't cover that anymore.

The only reason i brough this up is i don't know that many places where
your _not_ going to have a gateway.

And don't get me started on PPPoE...
