Ok, followed these suggestions, and now no "Network unreachable" message. Thanks!

However, I still can't seem to access the network.

Well, the only place that shows up is in /etc/hosts. The above behaviour still occurs with another IP that is *not* in /etc/hosts, in fact as long as the IP has 128.122.*.*. And, if I use a hostname, I get:

 [ root@cognilap ~]# ping
 ping: unknown host
