Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So from the machine that won't keep the ip address you are attempting to give it, can you post your rc.inet1.conf ?
root@SERVER_HOST:~# cat /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
# This file contains the configuration settings for network interfaces.
# If USE_DHCP[interface] is set to "yes", this overrides any other settings.
# If you don't have an interface, leave the settings null ("").
# You can configure network interfaces other than eth0,eth1... by setting
# IFNAME[interface] to the interface's name. If IFNAME[interface] is unset
# or empty, it is assumed you're configuring eth<interface>.
# Several other parameters are available, the end of this file contains a
# comprehensive set of examples.
# Config information for eth0:
# Config information for eth1:
# Config information for eth2:
# Config information for eth3:
# Default gateway IP address:
# Change this to "yes" for debugging output to stdout. Unfortunately,
# /sbin/hotplug seems to disable stdout so you'll only see debugging output
# when rc.inet1 is called directly.
# Example of how to configure a bridge:
# Note the added "BRNICS" variable which contains a space-separated list
# of the physical network interfaces you want to add to the bridge.
## Example config information for wlan0. Uncomment the lines you need and fill
## in your info. (You may not need all of these for your wireless network)
##WLAN_IWPRIV="set AuthMode=WPAPSK | set EncrypType=TKIP | set WPAPSK=96389dc66eaf7e6efd5b5523ae43c7925ff4df2f8b7099495192d44a774fda16"
## Some examples of additional network parameters that you can use.
## Config information for wlan0:
#IFNAME="wlan0" # Use a different interface name nstead of
# the default 'eth4'
#HWADDR="00:01:23:45:67:89" # Overrule the card's hardware MAC address
#MTU="" # The default MTU is 1500, but you might need
# 1360 when you use NAT'ed IPSec traffic.
#DHCP_KEEPRESOLV="yes" # If you dont want /etc/resolv.conf overwritten
#DHCP_KEEPNTP="yes" # If you don't want ntp.conf overwritten
#DHCP_KEEPGW="yes" # If you don't want the DHCP server to change
# your default gateway
#DHCP_IPADDR="" # Request a specific IP address from the DHCP
#WLAN_ESSID=DARKSTAR # Here, you can override _any_ parameter
# defined in rc.wireless.conf, by prepending
# 'WLAN_' to the parameter's name. Useful for
# those with multiple wireless interfaces.
#WLAN_IWPRIV="set AuthMode=WPAPSK | set EncrypType=TKIP | set WPAPSK=thekey"
# Some drivers require a private ioctl to be
# set through the iwpriv command. If more than
# one is required, you can place them in the
# IWPRIV parameter (separated with the pipe (|)
# character, see the example).
But he's been trying a few different configurations and might have initially chosen network manager, I am not positive whether doing a second netconfig after having setup network manager actually disables it from running - it very well might, but I haven't tried it so I thought it might be worth checking in case it acts as if its the first time you set up networking each time its run
