how do i stop eth0 from trying to config at boot?

i want eth0 to try to config at boot when im on my school network, but when im at home i have dialup, so its just a waste of time for it to try to contact a dhcpd server and try to config eth0 at home. is there a way where i can have it finish the boot process after it times out trying to contact the dhcpd server, instead of going thru that whole eth0 setup process?

I know that Red Hat has a thing they call profiles I think where you can set different configuration, much like the windows way with hardware profiles.

I have never tested it and donšt actually remember it's name. Using Suse now.
Suse appears to have it to. (YaST - System - Profile manager)
