Did you check the network configuration tools (standard in Fedora Core
2) ?

Look in the menu : System Parameters -> Network.

It allows you to create different profiles and to (de)activate different
interfaces and parameters (DNS, route...) according each profile.

The "user" side of this tool is "Network Connection Control" in the
System Tools menu that allows user to (de)activate interfaces (if you
allow users to activate these interfaces).

I hope it can help.

Sincerely yours, Mathieu.
