This is really strange. Could you post the output of "ifconfig -a"
after this happens? Does the box show more then one ethx interface?

You should have an ifcfg-lo and it should look like this:

DEVICE=lo
IPADDR=127.0.0.1
NETMASK=255.0.0.0
NETWORK=127.0.0.0
# If you're having problems with gated making 127.0.0.0/8 a martian,
# you can change this to something else (255.255.255.255, for example)
BROADCAST=127.255.255.255
ONBOOT=yes
NAME=loopback
