Re: system-config-network problem (fixed)

I'm in the process of replacing FC9 with FC10. As the boxes on my LAN are

Everything is working normally (access across the LAN and to the Internet)
except on the machine on which I have just installed FC10. Something keeps
replacing the Netmask entry I want for eth0 (255.255.255.0) with the
Gateway address (192.168.1.11). This occurs in both the
system-config-network widget and the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file. So I can't reach the
Internet from this box (although I can ssh to the other machines.) This
rewriting of the Netmask field keeps occurring in both places no matter
where (or how many times) I make the corrections. The network-scripts
directory does not contain a route-eth0 file which, in my understanding,
is another place where this problem might be occurring.  Thanks for the
help!

terrible, stupid bug of initial release - you probably want to edit
manually instead of using system-config-network until you get updates
installed.

What file(s) do I need to update manually? Or else, how can I run the
first yum update with the system in this condition?

edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and fix it, then type
'service network restart'

Thanks -- I'm running the first yum update now. After correcting ifcfg-eth0 I had been rebooting (and thereby regenerating the same problem all over again!) instead of doing the crucial step "service network restart".
