where is ubuntu 10.0 desktop network config?


On ubuntu 10.0 desktop, I can configure network ( for example, eth0 and eth1 )via GUI, but the /etc/network/interfaces just had two lines after setting eth0 and eth1:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
I can't use ifdown/ifup to stop/start eth0 or eth1 because they're not in the file. So which file is written after I configure network via GUI?

I think the GUI affects the files under /etc/NetworkManager, if that answers your quesetion. And as far as I know it is at least not recommended to use ifup etc in compination with the network-manager. There should be a way to uninstall it though...
