That sounds like a great idea, I support the idea of making it on by
default also in DVD install images.

I tried starting NetworkManager under my user account on F8t3 but I
got an error message "You must be root to run NetworkManager!" :(

Please make it on by default also for DVD install images.

One other small issue; I can't find NetworkManager anywhere in Gnome
menue. Where is it located? There is no shortcut that I can see in
Applications or in System menues. It that on purpose? Why?
