Yes.  This was part of a self-imposed network learning exercise, so I
had already learnt the importance of loopback.

First problem; my 'hosts' file backup was recovered. So I think that was
what I had. Every manual and the file itself said don't touch this file.
I touched it.  Did I get it back to its original shape? I tried
replacing with which 'ifconfig' and 'hostname -va'
say is my inet addr.  (Why it is not is a question for
another day).

My ifcfg-eth0 script says:
# nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller

'route' also lists the default as not

When I look at the NetworkManager 'thingy' (Is thingy spelt 'thingy' or
'thingie'?) there is a whole bunch of blank fields.  Learning what to
put in those fields was the point of the exercise.  I had assumed that
the gui fields would reflect the data in a configuration file somewhere
but it apparently doesn't.

Second problem; I originally used the system-control-network thingy.
Both were on my administration menu. I understand now that that has been
deprecated in favour of system-config-network.  Could that have messed
things up? 

This is getting frustrating.  I have always let various frontends in
both Linux and other OSes set up my internet.  The first time I dive in,
reality does not seem to match the manuals and textbooks.
