Preserving Hostname/DNS Name

I have network manager setup under Gentoo - it was pretty easy.

rc-update del net.eth0
rc-update del net.eth1
then cleaned up the scripts themself (rm /etc/init.d/net.eth*)

After that all is well, except two things.

a. I use Gnome.  After connecting to a wireless network, my machine
takes whatever hostname is given, thus borking my gnome session.  I
have to logout then in, and everything works.

b. It doesn't (seem to) provide a faculty for retaining WEP keys.
