Description Gene Czarcinski 2003-04-05 10:25:14 EST
Description of problem:

The installer network configuration "page" defaults to dhcp being used for both
ip and hostname.  However, if a static IP is specified, the hostname
specification still defaults to specification by dhcp ... this makes no sense. 
If a static ip is specified, then manual hostname should be specified.
Comment 1 Mike Chambers 2003-04-05 20:20:21 EST
I don't get that this doesnt' already work.  I use static IP's on my network,
and when I *un*check the dhcp box, it lets me put in an IP.  I edit the IP part
and once that is inputted, the next box lets me input the hostname.
