Unfortunately, this is not as easy in Linux as it is in Solaris. Look here or here for a short overview.

ifdown eth0

and then change the line in the ifcfg-eth0 to be as follows


this willl stop the interface and then prevent it from starting during service or machine startup.

Personally i no longer use ifconfig on Linux.
