Re: static IP, the method that I use on a stripped down debxo is to run
a script from /etc/rc.local ...


while true; do
    /sbin/iwconfig eth0 essid quozl.linux.org.au mode managed channel 6
    sleep 1
    /sbin/ifconfig eth0 netmask
    sleep 60

And the trigger in /etc/rc.local is:

/usr/local/bin/quozl-network-persist < /dev/null > /dev/null 2> /dev/null &

This has proved adequate for my purposes so far.
