Description Need Real Name 2003-03-27 05:54:25 UTC
Description of problem:
If I configure redhat-network-config for dhcp use it works fine, until I try to 
change it to static ip address. When I reinstall and set to static from the
start it works fine, then as well as long as I don't switch to dhcp and then 
later attempt to switch back to static ip address.

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

How reproducible:

Every time without fail.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use redhat-network-config to set up dhcp for ethernet connection
2.At any later time delete that ethernet connection and add a new one only
this time use static ip address (yes all fields are filled in correctly, in as
much as the static ip address works just fine if I never set dhcp)
3.attempt to apply and you will receive (or I received) an error message stating 
that it was probably a bug in redhat-config-network and to file a bug report
Actual results:

Expected results:
