[ltp] Network connection and bootup

I am building a TP360e using LFS (www.linuxfromscratch.org)
I would like to know the strategies used (by distros or otherwise) to
handle bootup scripts when the laptop is connected to a network.
I run various daemons that I want available when I am connected to a LAN
(as opposed to my ISP via ppp - next issue). Things like samba, ssh,
I have thought about using another bootup script which starts and stops
the relevant daemons. This script will go in start_fn and stop_fn in
/etc/pmcia/network.opts. I had an abortive attempt at putting _all_
network daemon bootup scripts in this function, with pretty bad results.
Another thought I've had is to use start_fn to write a file, which the
network daemons use to on bootup/down. This does not address the
hotplugging issue though.
Any ideas, thoughts, HOWTO's, examples most gratefully received.
