I have a DSL connection to the internet with SBC.  Using the Internet 
Configuration Wizard one has to enter a provider name such as "SBC" 
resulting in a file "/etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts/ifcfg-SBC" being 
created to hold its configuration data.

However during bootup, I received a message for file "ifcfg-ppp0" not 
found and the connection is not made.

On a lark, I went back to the wizard, this time using provider name 
"ppp0", resulting in a file 
"/etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0" for the config data.

Now during bootup, the ifcfg-ppp0 is found and the connection is made as 

My question is, shouldn't the bootup have been properly trying to find 
"ifcfg-SBC" when starting up ppp0 with the original configuration setup?
