Thank you!
Do a search on this site there are plenty of examples, but basically /etc/hostname.<interfacename> is used to set the IP for each card by mapping it a hostname in /etc/hosts.

When you did the sysunconfig thing did you end up with a dialog when you rebooted which asked you how do you want to set up the network?

Yes - I was asked many question e.g. language, timezone ...networked etc.

It gave a choice of Static/DHCP - I selected DHCP and it worked :-)
