    Disabling network from grub commandline?

    I would like to know if there's a way to boot my system disabling the network during the boot phase,by using grub commandline options or otherwise editing the current boot line as found in /var/log/dmesg
    Code:
    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-20-generic root=UUIDxxxx ro quiet splash
    I know I could always add a script in rc.local but I'd like to know if this could be done from the grub menu,before even booting a freshly installed system.

    OK,I will try this for you...BTW,where is this stuff documented? I reckon there are quite a few arguments that you can add to the grub commandline,but I couldn't find this nonet option anywhere.
