Sorry, was away from keyboard for last days.

The thing with setting up network is that it requires root access.  Switching
users is not easily done in scripts and is system-specific (on some distros
there's no root password by default so "su" doesn't work and you have to use
sudo or even something else).

qemu-neo1973 at the moment emulates GTA01.  GTA01 had no network card as such
and this is why standard qemu networking options don't apply.  GTA02 has a WLAN
card so networking should work out-of-the-box without any setting up, like with
normal QEMU.  I propose waiting until we have a stable WLAN kernel driver and
WLAN emulation.  WLAN emulation should be available soon.

Currently I am missing some crucial documentation/hardware to implement some
bits, but it shouldn't be long till this is resolved.
The pppd chapter in the wiki was written by Tuukkaa (I should give credit :p ).
