Wake-On-Lan

Hello,
I have read that to remotely wake a PC I need to soft-power it off, ie. 
so that the network card still gets power afterwards. Then you need to 
send "the magic packet", eg. using ether-wake 
(www.scyld.com/wakeonlan.html) and the card's MAC. However, the question 
is: how exactly do I go about soft-powering off? Just delete the 
K80network symlink from /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc.0.d? Anything else? Thanks 
for any suggestions!

Kind regards,
David Ciecierski
