What about -- as I said -- /etc/sysconfig/network?

ifup is just a shell script. Noone can really debug this remotely for you. You'll have to step through the ifup script yourself and figure out why it wants to bring the loopback interface up with dhcp -- which is what your problem is.


the "network" script is:

NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=obtunded.depaulacs.org
GATEWAY=192.168.10.1
GATEWAYDEV=""
BOOTPROTO=dhcp

Is this "BOOTPROTO" the same as the "BOOTP" you're referring to?

Why, yes, BOOTPROTO defaults to BOOTP, if it's set, read the ifup script. Get rid of this. You may need to run system-config-network, and flip your actual network interface to explicitly use dhcp, if that's what you need.
