That gets me four lines, one each for ifcfg-eth0, ifcfg-eth1, ifcfg-lo,
and ifcfg-netgear (netgear being my nickname for the interface between me
and my wireless broadband provider, which is a Netgear MBR814.

Btw, I'm pretty sure that at least eth1 and netgear are things I've added
through the GUI this afternoon. Even eth0 may be one. But the GUI app that
shows eth0 and eth1 won[t let me activate either; and the other GUI shows
only lo, with no way to add anything.
