Static IP addresses are configured in the device... check your rh8.0
configuration files and make sure it is not requesting a DHCP address from
the router.

Also make sure that if you want to access the machine using names, you can
set up your internal names in "hosts" files on your various other
machines.  This means that if you _change_ a static IP address in the
device , you will have to alter all of those files on other machines as
well so they will know about the change.
