after altering ip settungs with redhat-config-network i have 3 different config files for each interface on my harddisk (in etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/, /etc/sysconfig/networking/ and in /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/)

these are hardlinked and reflect the profile setting...
only the one in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts should be used by any other
tools/script like ifup/ifdown
