and disabled NetworkManager and configured the network using the widget
System -> Administration -> Network from the gnome desktop and filling

field reverts back to what I mistakenly typed in before. This is
apparently why I can't reach the network from this box.
Is there an easy fix to this -- short of doing the installation over?
Thanks for the help!
