    You do realize that RHEL is not meant to run on laptops, don't you? If you're connected to a router that does DHCP, and the address changes each time you connect, putting your static address in will not work. If it always assigns the same address then you can put in the static one.

    RHEL 5 does not have a decent wireless connection manager. I recommend installing Wicd, and use that for all network connections.

    wicd - home
    SourceForge.net: wicd: Files

    Follow the instruction for installing in Fedora, except use the latest version of Wicd (1.5.9).
