RHEL 6.0 network configuration.

When one selects the default minimal desktop installation RHEL 6.0 does not configure the ethernet interface. To get it working edit the file: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and set NM_CONTROLLED="no". This ensures the device is no longer slaved to the network manager. Then restart networking:

sudo service network restart

and finally get DNS working by editing: /etc/resolv.conf

search **yourdomain**
nameserver **address**
nameserver **address**

It's a workaround but it got my box connected.
