Question Eth0 set up for Static, obtaining DHCP address?!

Hi All,
I have a problem that absolutley has me stumped. I have Mandrake 10.1 Official running as a proxy server for the network segment in my room. I doubt this matters, but the internet interface [wlan0] is set up so that it is the only wireless NIC needed to get to the wireless router on the other end of the house. The LAN side of the proxy [eth0] is wired, and is running dhcpd, squid, and shorewall. eth0 is set up having a static address, the ifcfg-eth0 is listed below:


The problem I am having is that eth0 keeps obtaining a address. I know this is probably something simple I am overlooking, but what could be causing this?!?

Actually, I think it may have something to do with dhclient running in the background for wlan0, since it uses DHCP to obtain its address. This is launched when I do a /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart. Is a config maybe messed up somewhere? I could turn off DHCP on wlan0 but I would rather not. Thanks for any suggestions!
