I seem to be in a position of a lack of ammo. My local network is all 
fixed addressing via a common /etc/hosts file, with the individual 
machine being located in that file by its name.

So the bottom line is that the name of the machine, and its address are 
in the /etc/hosts file.  And the rest of it, includeing the duplicated 
address, is in /etc/networking/interfaces.  With an /etc/resolv.conf set 
to hosts,dns, any name that is not in the hosts file, that query is sent 
to the gateway device, which in this case is running a small cacheing 
nameserver, and it that doesn't hit, its sent on to my ISP's dns 
servers.  All transparent to me.

But, anything that looks or acts like network manager has been removed 
from my system. So any comments I might make about NM should be taken as 
the best swag* I can make based on 18 years of running linux.

*swag, a Scientific Wild Ass Guess.
