Time allowed to bring up network?


I have an ethernet connection built into my laptop but use a wireless device to connect to the network.

Whenever I boot (into Fedora 2) it sits there for (seems like) ages trying to bring up the not connected ethernet.

Is there a way to reduce the time the system will keep attempting to connect?

Yes, that would work - in fact it is what I have done.

I just thought there would be a more elegant solution?
