On my machine, I have several icfg-$STUFF where STUFF is not a device name, 
but a sort of config name.

For example, I have some files like ifcfg-PierreHome, with DEVICE=eth1, that 
allows me to set up a network with "ifup PierreHome", when I am not at home.

Nowdays, I prefere to use NetworkManager, instead of ifup, but ifup is a 
fallback when I debug NetworkManager.
