Why do you say it wasn't removed?
I think you misinterpreted the "/" in "YaST / ifup. Works perfectly
It does NOT mean ... invoke Yast, use the menu item 'ifup under the
it means that there is capability for this in yast, or, alternatively,

been around for about as long as Linux has had networking"
Sometimes people complain about my verbosity, all those clauses in
