The /etc/resolv.conf file does indeed get emptied (file exists, just no
info) upon shutdown/boot up.  Although the one
in /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/resolv.conf file is filled
out but I am guessing not ready by NM.  Soooo, I thought I read about
the ifcfg-ethx file having dns info inside it?  IF so, what paramaters
are used to list it there?  DNS seems to be about the only thing so far
from NM being completely usable and no configuring at all.

Other thatn that, all is well and services seem to start.  ALTHOUGH, I
have experienced that on shutdown, while shutting down quotas, it stays
there and never goes away?  Cold boot after to get it going.
