All I asked was 'How can I change network settings like IP/ netmask under RHL 7.2, without rebooting the system after making the changes. This is because Linuxconf does not work properly. And so does /etc/init.d/network restart. New IP/netmask is applied only when I reboot the system'.

>Yeah that was a bit f@#king rude. If you want help then you have to be
open to questions. You could have been trying to setup ip aliases, DNS
settings or anything else to do with networking. It's a pretty big
topic. Wineing about "I can't change this and it doesn't work booh hoo
hoo" doesn't mean a lot to most people.
