Description of problem:
Really a documentation issue:
says that "A profile cannot be activated at boot time": it can and this proves
very useful once I realised!
grep netprofile /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
shows that all the hooks for passing netprofile= via grub are there as the boot
process correctly read /proc/cmdline.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a new network profile
2. Pass netprofile=<new profile name> via grub.conf
3. Boot into the new profile
Actual Results: It works.
Expected Results: It should have worked. The documentation denies this.
Thanks for the information. I'll try it out. I said that because when I asked
the developer about it, he told me that you couldn't activate them at boot time.
A docs errata for this should appear in less than an hour on
