just so you know, I am doing rather good because I usually understand all
aspects of the bootscripts, and attempt to decide what would be useful for
LFS/BLFS, or other people's systems (so they can have fun customizing it
to their needs).

At the moment, I am still a bit green on iproute2 part, but it wont hurt
to throw it in now.  [I think it has something to do with redirecting
output from one interface to another...].

(also a bit green on hotplug, [except for the net subsystem] but that is
another story).
