howto disable eth0 at boot time
 
Hi,
I have a 10/100 broadcom chip on my motherboard, that i can't disable in bios or onboard with jumper. Linux picked it up during install and now during boot it takes a very long time to initialize it cuz i dont have it plugged into anything. I use my wireless card for networking, btw it works great and i am happy with it.

How do i tell linux to not start eth0 at boot time?
thanks

Edit:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
and change
ONBOOT=yes
to
ONBOOT=no

(or add it if it doesn't exist)
