(maybe this question is: how to switch between eth0 & WLAN 'quickly'?) with SuSE 9.1

PROBLEM: I have eth0 config'd & running fine; then add config for WLAN and eth0 won't initialize on boot.
on reboot, eth0 not initialized until i run dhcpcd -k , then -n. (or i delete WLAN ifcfg file).

b4 adding WLAN, eth0 works fine, and WLAN works fine after the setup below...
i'm looking to understand how i can ADD WLAN & change it depending on the AP...
BUT... leave the eth0 config intact and working.
(maybe this question is: how to switch between eth0 & WLAN 'quickly'?)
with SuSE 9.1 Personal.
via YaST2?

Toshiba A45-S130 /
Intel Corp. 82801BD PRO/100 VE (MOB) Ethernet Controller /
Askey AR5212 802.11abg NIC
using YaST2...
Control Center -> Yast2 Modules -> Network Devices -> Network Card ->Configure ->
then Edit Hostname & Name Server...

to ADD WLAN card... creates /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-xxx for the WLAN.

there seems to be only one set of settings for YaST2 Name Servers & Domain Search List ??
(or only one config of /etc/resolv.conf at a time??)
