not installed on the local disk, this comment will exist because Anaconda has 
it's own version of NetworkManager.

and the file said it had been overwritten by NetworkManager. NetworkManager is 
not installed. My server has 8 ethernet ports but I am only using 1 with a 
static address. Not sure how this is happening.

This is happening on one of my RHEL6 boxes.  I am running RHEL6.2.  I have 
NetworkManager disabled with chkconfig off and NM_CONTROLLED=no in the ifcfg-
eth0 script.  The box has a static IP, no dhcp. I've set PEERNDS=no without 
any sucess.  Writing DNS directives for the resolv.conf in the ifcfg-eth0 
script has mixed results and results in an unusable resolv.conf.  

Removing the resolv.conf.save file seems to be the only workable solution.  
Setting the parameters in the ifcfg-eth0 script, NM_CONTROLLED=no and 
PEERDNS=no, don't seem to work as advertized.

Is this still a "feature"
