Thanks for the help, and yep, that all makes sense, except that I have
directories rc0.d through to rc6.d and directories rc0.d, rc1.d and rc.6
contain KXXetc and not SXXetc. Erm, guess this is my lack of knowledge
of terminology, but what is my runlevel (and how do I determine it is
necassary) and therefore which directories should I delay the network
startup in? Or should I simply delay it in all?

Don't fancy 'breaking' anything at this stage of experience...
