    (Segmentation fault)
    ########################################## ################
    And then when i go to ""PROGRAMS"---->SYSTEM"---->"NETWORK CONFIGURATION" i get an error of:
    An unhandled exception has occired. This is most likley a bug. Pleasae copy the full text of this exception or save the crash dump to a fle a detailed bug report against redhat0config-network at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/

    As stated by the last few lines of the error message, it's possible that your hosts file has been corrupted somehow. If you could post the contents of your /etc/hosts file, we could probably help you figure out what to do.

    Another possiblity is a hostname conflict. Have you changed your hostname recently? The XServer communicates with itself over the loopback interface. If you change your hostname, but don't change /etc/hosts accordingly, the Xserver has a fit because it doesn't know what IP address to talk to. If you edit your /etc/hosts file to match the change in hostname, the problems go away.

    Here is what my
    "/etc/hosts" file looks like

    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs that require network functionality will #fail
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    119.13.1.110
    119.13.1.120
    ########################################################

    domain al.hsia.telus.net
    nameserver 119.13.1.110 # <--- i know this is my ISP DNS SERVER
    nameserver 119.13.1.120 #<---Secondary ISP DNS Sever

    Ok, the nameserver entries don't need to be in your /etc/hosts file. You can remove them from there. Does your computer have a hostname or does it just say localhost at the prompts? If your computer is simply called localhost, then try removing the 119.13.1.110 entry and the 119.13.1.120 entry. Then see if it works any better.
