Description of problem:
When configuring my system for DHCP(eth0) using the redhat-config-network, my
ifcfg-eth0 was written with peerdns='no'.
I could not find any place to disable the no peerdns option from the gui and of
course my client would not operate correctly afterwards.
using a peerdns value of 'on' by default on dhcp clients is probablty a good idea!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-network
2. Configure your eth0 for dhcp
3. Save changes
Actual Results: A look in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file
showed a peerdns value of 'no'
Expected Results: A look in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file
should show a peerdns value of 'yes'
