I have a router connected to my DSL modem. I have three machines
connected to the router. The router gives the three machines the same IP
address, every time. It's now set that way. I killed off network manager
and it's craziness and just set up my addresses statically. No dhcp
nothin'. Just edit hosts or use the netconfig thingie and away you go.
No more problems. Oh yeah, set up your nameserver addresses
in /etc/resolv.conf or use netconfig thingie again. 

You can now safely have a localhost without network manager doing beans
to ya'. Ric
