Re: Static IP Addressing



Thank you all for your suggestions. I appreciate the discussion.

There are two network statements in the kick start file because that is
the way that Anaconda creates /root/anaconda-ks.cfg. You may recall that
anaconda-ks.cfg is the file of kick start statements created when a
configuration is specified with the GUI. When the Hostname is specified
at the bottom of the Network Configuration screen the second network 
statement is added to anaconda-ks.cfg:

network --hostname=lamp.hunter.org

I was following Anaconda's pattern. 

I tried again after combining the options of the two network statements
into a single statement. Now everything works as expected. I was certain 
that I had tried this once before without the expected results. I was 
obviously confused.

Thank you again.
