/etc/network/interfaces clearly has something to do with starting up the network interfaces, presumably runs at boot time, and probably only if the runlevel calls for the networks to start.

See AboutThesePages.



A partially annotated portion of /etc/network/interfaces (from "Re: [Blt-newuser] Debian and default gateway solution", 23 Jul 2002; Gary Turner (kk5st@swbellPLEASENOSPAM.net)):

# The loopback interface auto lo #auto means it starts at boot iface lo inet loopback

# LAN interface auto eth0 #ditto iface eth0 inet static address netmask gateway

# Another interface # auto eth1
