Description Warren Young 2001-12-17 13:52:05 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011012

Description of problem:
There is no place in the network config tool to change the IP address
assigned to an interface.  You can edit the /etc/hosts file, but that
doesn't change /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-IFNAME.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Open neat, and try to find a place to change eth0's IP address.

Additional info:

You can edit the ifcfg-IFNAME file by hand, but since linuxconf and other
GUI admin tools have been deprecated in favor of neat, neat should at least
have all the functionality of the tools it is intended to replace.

Go to Devices/Protocols/Edit and then choose not to use DHCP.
