I was screwing around, experimenting, with the system-control-network
gui -- incorrectly added stuff to the 'hosts' page and saved. I got a
message to the effect 'we will save this stuff, but we are going to
disconnect you for badness". I was duly disconnected.
I have removed the 'bad stuff' from /etc/hosts and saved.
hosts now reads :
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.

How can I fill these in from the command line?
This is a very improbable long shot, but worth checking any ways. In the
system-config-network control preflet, see if you can find a checkbox
that says something like "Managed by NetworkManager" and make sure it's
checked. I was in the system-config-network panel one day to add a hosts
file entry and suddenly lost network connectivity afterwards. After
poking at it for an hour I found that settting had been unchecked some
how. Although I doubt that's it in your case, I hope it's something
