I've been seeing the same behavior for the past two months.  Not long
after I switched from RH 7.2 to RH 7.3 (actually, KRUD 7.3), my static
IP would, for no reason that I can determine, spontaneously switch to
DHCP after a few hours.

Its annoying (and rebooting seems to clear it up) but since its so easy
to just pop in/out the cardbus adapter that I haven't been motivated
enough to complain about it or try to debug it.

The next time it happens, I'll dig through the logs.
