The new boot-up scheme allows you to set up default and named profiles
that override the last settings when you reboot.  I'm not sure where
or if the details are documented, but if you change the system
address and name with the redhat-config-network GUI and save it
the right files get updated.  If you don't have X running on
the console you can ssh in from an X session elsewhere to
run it.
