Read the entire story here
After a text mode install from ISO's on another partition, I have no network
devices configured. Within redhat-config-network I added my 8139too ethernet
device. At this point look at the Hosts tab and you will see it is blank.
After I clicked "Activate" then "Yes", /etc/hosts becomes blank.
I can also reproduce this every time after removing the device and re-adding.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with no devices in redhat-config-network
2. Add 8139too device
3. Look at Hosts tab, it is blank.
4. Click activate
5. Look at /etc/hosts, it is blank.
Confirmed using neat to set-up my network drivers - a 3c503 and airo wireless.
After setting up in neat, my /etc/hosts is now blank.
will fixed with redhat-config-network >= 1.1.87 and rhpl > 0.72

Warren, do these new packages work out a little better for you?
I just tested redhat-config-network-1.1.90-1 and rhpl-0.75-1 from Rawhide. It
seems to work properly now.
