You didn't specify which version of Mandrake... but here goes.

In Mandrake Control Center you should be able to configure your network cards. It's in this screen that you can specify WHICH network cards come up at boot time and if they have a fixed ip or get one from a DHCP server.

Go to: Mandrake Control Center and then Network and Internet. Then select the DrakConnect application. This will display your network cards and their current state. Now you go into expert mode and select the network card you want to make changes to... one option is to have it come up at boot up time... set this to "no".

In the subject I stated it was 9.2
I tried that but I have no expert option. I was able to see the choice for my other NIC(eth1) bu I need to turn off eth0 (integrated nic) and the only way it comes up is if it is the one connected. It is incompatible with my router router and as such won't display. There has to be an easy way to change the startup option...
