I have my laptop configured through the use of netCFG to handle the wireless to make it a bit faster to configure. While that is the case, I would prefer that only that eth1 is used, and would like to see eht0 disappear totally from the list of detected network interfaces if Arches kernel is flexible enough to do this.
