Hey all,

I am trying to write a shell script that does the following:

cd  /etc/sysconfig/network
(as root)   cp <an ifcfg file I made > ifcfg-eth-idxxxxxxx
(open an xterm)  xterm -e     (this is what I am having trouble with  
->)  sudo  /sbin/ifdown eth0  (then)   ifup eth0  
ifconfig  (to check all is well) 

I can get as far as  "ifdown eth0" without a hitch,  but I can't get 
"ifup eth0" and "ifconfig".  The shell exits after it completes "ifdown 
eth0" (even with a "&" at end of line).
What is the syntax for multiple commands (ie. ifdown, then ifup).
