system boot


I have configured my system to connect to a wireless network on bootup, but now every time I boot I have to wait and watch it connect (it outputs some dhcp connect stuff) which delays the boot process. is there any way to just initialize the script and then go on with the boot process instead of letting it output some pointless crap and waiting for it to end?

Well, anything network related would have to wait on a valid DHCP lease anyway, which is a considerable part of the system.

Though it is hard to give you much guidance without knowing more about your setup. To start with, what distro?

my wish is to make it wait in the background like it goes with network-manager or wicd
