Description of problem:
After configuring eth0 for DHCP update from outside source but leaving
"Automatically obtain DNS information from provider" unchecked, DHCP still
overrides information written in DNS tab.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on eth0 selection
2.Click edit
3.Click Automatically obtain IP address settings with: DHCP
4.Make sure "Automatically obtain DNS information from provider" is not selected
5.Enter DNS information under DNS tab
6.Reboot computer

Actual Results:  After logging back in and opening up gnome terminal:
at prompt type "dig computername"
Output states it is using outside DNS information.

Log into network-configuration and click on DNS. Information has changed to
information from DHCP server

Expected Results:  dig results from local DNS server and DNS tab to retain
PROPER information that was manually entered.

Additional info:

CPU Intel PIII 733 
RPM: redhat-config-network-1.0.0-1

Have to MANUALLY edit /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0

by adding a line near top of file to say: 

Plus complicated stopping and starting eth0 device and changing DNS information
in DNS tab before restarting eth0.
