I don't really understand how someone changing a setting on a switch
could cause these sorts of errors with the Red Hat network startup

Maybe you should ask them exactly what they changed.  Are you quite
sure that whatever change they made is what caused this problem, and
it isn't just a coincidence?  Looking at the messages, it looks like
there is something really wrong with your network settings.

Do you get the same series of errors if you just type "ifup eth0"?  If
so, then you could post the output of "sh -x /sbin/ifup eth0".

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
