Ah, thanks. Most of the sysconfig files are commented and have several 
default settings specified, unfortunately the network file doesn't belong 
to these. I did it with modprobe.conf and that works, I'm going to change 
it to this method.

Oh, I see, I know the concept but I wasn't aware that it's activated by 
default and called "zeroconf". I assume this is new with 2.6 kernels, I've 
never worked with 2.6 kernels before installing CentOS. I don't need that, 
gonna remove it.
