RH ES 3 - configured network and vlans but it all goes after reboot ??

Hi,
Sorry for what must be a really silly question.
Working on a RH ES3 box that some one else has already worked on. I reconfigure the network cards using the ifconfig command. I also add a couple of vlans using the vconfig command. Everything looks good but when I reboot it goes to back how it was when I started.
I know it's something to do with the files that live in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
Here's what would be great though - is there a command that will let me do the equivalent of the old Cisco - copy running-config startup-config - rather than have to muck about with a load of text files.
Many thanks,
Julian

Hi,
Thanks for that - what I'm really after though is how to make this

ifconfig eth0 10.1.149.150

stick.

Without having to edit some files.

and system-config-network doesn't work too good on my gui-less system.

Many thanks in advance,
Julian
