This is called the Zeroconf network ... it happens automatically in many
OSes (Windows since win98, Mac, many Linuxes) and is designed to make
the machine reachable on a network even with a botched network setup.

You can make it go away with this entry in /etc/sysconfig/network: 


Then restart the network service ... "service network restart" (or
reboot the machine)

However, this does remove some functionality.  For more info about
zeroconf and what it can do see:





If your network is properly configured, you should be able to turn off
Zeroconf with no problems.
