ifconfig actually works (in "read only") mode as normal user, it's just
not part of the path. You have to run:
/sbin/ifconfig

Found this out when I took over care of a bunch of Mandrake 10 boxen
(suddenly I appreciate SUSE a lot more than I used to!) without knowing
the root password and without being able to shut some of them down.
