In RedHat Linux 6.1 there seems to be a bug in linux conf,
and the IP alis funciton.. Atlest it wont manage to bring up
the aliases.. I tryed compiling inn a new Kerlen (2.2.13)
but still it wont work..
Besides, GNOME is and the system itself is rather "Usnable",
Now I run RedHat 6.0 and it's running Stable...
this is fixed in the errata initscripts...
