Description of problem:
When I installed Wherewolf (Fedora 8), I chose to set a static IP address.  I specified at install

When the install completed and the system rebooted, it took an inordinate amount of time to boot.  It had paused at sendmail and sendmail-client startup.

When I brought up the network manager (system-config-network), I found that the hosts listing had the following address set for my hostname:, which is actually nxdomain.guide.opendns.com.

After I manually edited the listing to put the correct IP address in place, things were back to normal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start install from Fedora 8 DVD
2.  When Networking questions start, specify static vice dynamic address
3.  Continue installation

Actual Results:
Upon reboot, the wrong IP address was in the hosts listing

Expected Results:
The correct IP address should have been in the hosts listing

Additional info:
This was reproduced over two installations, the first, which I later messed up, and the reinstall.

Unable to reproduce with the Fedora 9 Preview release or rawhide.  When I enter a static IP address, the 
system is set to that address on reboot.
