Re: F8 is getting *really* sysadmin-hostile

This will not have the desired effect.  _Never_ use "chkconfig --del"
manually (unless you are manually uninstalling non-RPM-packaged
software).

You want "chkconfig NetworkManager off".

The problem with using --del is that it removes all references to
NetworkManager in the rc?.d directories.  The next time there is an
update to the NetworkManager RPM, it will run "chkconfig --add", which
will reset it to the default (which is to start on boot).  If you
instead turn it off, chkconfig will see it as already installed and do
nothing.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
