Mary Ellen,

Per the referenced thread (and
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2004-February/msg02354.html):  Did you try rebooting 3 or more times.  It seemed that if you reboot (with kudzu enabled) enough times things should normalize.  One other alternative is to remove the network cards, reboot, and let kudzu remove the interfaces.  Shutdown, reinstall the cards and reboot.  

IIRC, it seemed that this problem occurred going from a 2.4 to a 2.6
kernel.  As long as you do not reboot into the 2.4 kernel things should
stabilize, but once you go back you'll have the problems again.
