No, quagga should auto-detect the interfaces from the operating
system, so no need to name them here.  Adding interface commands
is useful only if you want to use interface subcommands to set
various relevant features of the interface.

This is under quagga 0.99.6?  Are you putting the command
in the proper place?  It's an ospf router subcommand,
so it needs to be in the section that starts "router ospf".

Then you'll need to specify your network commands carefully to avoid
including interfaces that you don't want advertised.
