issue a /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart, after that I do an ifconfig and
the networking information hasn't changed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to have a different IP
2. execute /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
3. run ifconfig and notice that nothing has changed.
