Question Quick question about named and DHCP3..

Will named and DHCP3 start if eth0 (primary interface on my system) is down.
I found the syntax in /etc/network/interfaces to be a mess.
I changed it to be the right syntax.
Now I'm ready to restart but was just wondering if I'm on the right track with this.

For completeness here is a copy of my interfaces...

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# List of hotplug network interfaces
mapping hotplug
script grep
map eth0 eth0
map eth3

# The primary network interface
# allow-hotplug eth0
# Inside world
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
up route add -net network gw eth0

# Secondary network interface for now. May change later.
auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static

#Outside world and beyond
auto eth3
iface eth3 inet static
address x.x.x.x
gateway x.x.x.x

# The end....

Thank you for your time,
Jon aka NWPRxR
