Ah, 10.1.0.110 should have been 10.1.0.100

That is the internal host ip address of orion.  I mistyped it.

Ok, it turns out that I HAD all those settings.  But it does
not work.  I checked the messages logs and it shows me that
DHCP is clearly being used/attempted.  This was the problem
created by F8-Live CD - it did not properly set my network
configuration.

How can I disable DHCP and get my system back to "Static" IP?

Thanks -
