Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-11-25 09:18:26 EST
hmm... this looks like an old bug. Do you really have Red Hat Linux 8?
which version of redhat-config-network is this?
$ rpm -q redhat-config-network
gives you the version.

You may also try this, if you have 7.x:
Comment 3 Bart Wahlgren 2003-12-03 15:15:58 EST
Version of redhat-config is
OS version using uname -a is 2.4.9-e.3smp

I've been able to correct the problem by removing and reinstalling 
the NIC's. Thanks for the link I'll update the utility.
