Lets prefece this with saying I AM NOT A Linux admin - this is a projecet that the company went with...

RHEL 5.7
Firewall turned off via GUI
VMWARE VShpere 4
Gateway (Gateway to Outside)
When I set the server static on the 36 network (36.6) I cannot connect to the 34 network - I cannot ping inside or outside.  I did set up a route from .36/24 to the 34.240 gateway.
If I set the server to use DHCP it gets an ip address, I set the nameservers, and restart network.  Then I can ping all across network and to outside; However if I go to a browser and try to open up - it takes so long to connect.  I have deleted the config files made sure there was no routes set.
Thoughts?  I know its alot - and this is a FRESH install - maybe I missed something?
