Ok, I trust you have much more expertise with this topic.

Can I ask you (and all other fedora devels) one general question that
regards usability, desktop users and wireless...?

How do you expect average users who are new to linux and install
fedora from DVD to use wireless?

Is the NetworkManager only option (if they find it and start it in the
first place)? Are you making some fedora specific tool for easy
connectivity based on system-config-network?

Is using system-config-network only way of setting up and using
wireless network via gui in fedora?

Thank you for all of your comments,
Valent.
