network has gone down again, and I cannot figure out why



I had this thing working as of yesterday, I rebooted and it's doing the
very same thing again. Only this time there is no mistake with a comma
versus a period. 

Does anyone recognize this??

root iam etc]# rc.d/init.d/network start
Bringing up loopback interface:                            [  OK  ]
Bringing up interface eth0:  RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument

What is really strange is this...

[root iam etc]# more hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost       iam
70.145.234.214  iam.wayward4now.net     wayward4now.net


Notice the alias iam on the localhost line? WTF? Since when would
anything get added other than localhost.localdomain and localhost?
I've edited that sucker out a dozen times, and it pops back up. 
This is pretty crucial as I have people from www.prisontalk.com "coming
in to visit today" after church... at least I don't have to dress or put
on clothes. Up again until 5AM, this is really old. Ubuntu is starting
to look good to me. 

Now I'm back in DHCP mode with the DSL modem and still get

Error while performing operation.
Host lookup failed: smtp.googlemail.com: Temporary failure in name
resolution

It's slow as hell, too. Something somewhere having something to do with
named I'm guessing. Was that BIND issue resolved?? ls this helpful? From
messages: note: I'm in DHCP mode and STILL getting errors resolving!

when I type route is stalls a bit then I get this:

in DHCP mode. 
God, I need my static IP back! I've never has this array of problems
before. I don't recognize 169.254.0.0 either. If anyone thinks they
really know, and has free LD call me at 336-333-9311. I'm supposed to be
getting up with newsweek, as they might do an article on OAR (fringe
uses of computing!!) and this looks REALLY bad. Please God, no more
commas. I'm begging here. <chuckles>  Ric
