    Thanks for your comprehensive summary. I'll review it and post back with more info once I've tried your suggestions. (I may need help with them too!) Thanks also for your info on my HOSTNAME questions. That helps. PW

    RE: RH GIU Missing as Root
    Thanks for your help - I'll grab that and paste in it. It's people like you that make the internet go round! In the meantime I have a question related to my IP address change. I was able to su into root and change my IP address, but I had to modify other things, like my smb.conf file to get my machine back on the network. In looking around and doing those tasks I noticed something strange. I see hostnames defined in several places, and given I was having trouble finding the machine on the network, I thought I'd ask about it. Things are working now, but I'd like to understand a little more about which hostname applies in which context. Here are the contents of the various files: (carbonite is the name of the machine on my network) /etc/HOSTNAME: [quote]carbonite.mydomain.com[/quote] /etc/sysconfig/network: [quote]NETWORKING=yes HOSTNAME=localhost.localdomain[/quote] /etc/samba/lmhosts: [quote]127.0.0.1 localhost[/quote]

    RE: RH GIU Missing as Root
    Thanks mfillpot, I've spent so much time sudo'ing on ubuntu lately, that I forget that I should be able to su into the root account in reg. linux flavors. I'll try that to make my network config changes and report back. On the issue with the interfaces for root, I'm guessing I would need to su into root to delete those files as well? Is that a comprehensive list of files that would get re-created? I'm no Linux/RH guru... Thanks for your help. P

    RH GIU Missing as Root
    Hi all, I'm running an old AMD K6II - 450 with RH 7.2 workstation - just using it as a file server on my network. I store some fairly important data there and back it up to a FreeNAS box. I need to change the IP address as I'm made significant changes to my network configuration. But I'm having problems with the RH box when I login as Root. I don't get any interface popping up after re-booting anymore. No gnome gui, no CLI - nothing, just a dark blue screen. When I login as a regular user, I get Gnome and all is good. But I also can't run sudo commands as the regular user, because the user isn't included in Sudoer's group. So I can't edit some of the machine's files under etc/../network-scripts to modify the IP address, because I'm not Root. Any ideas on how I can get an interface back up? Is there a key command, or something else I can check? Thanks for your help! P
