I don't have any file that begins with ifcfg in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
I took another look at the "services" gui and am not running
NetworkManager and I am running 'network'. And now I notice that in
the "status" area it sais (when network is highlighted):
--------------------------
ls: cannot access ifcfg*. No such file or directory.
Configured devices:
lo
Currently active devices:
lo eth0
--------------------------
Any clues?
Thanks;
nat
