I tried it, and it didn't work.  Here are some notes:

1. I had to edit NetwrokManager and NetworkManagerDispatcher because
   they had no levels specified.  This suggests to me that there
   must be another procedure.

2. I set KDE to allow display of programs on the desktop, which
   I had previously blocked.

3. I boot to level 3, and then type startx.  It is my guess that
   this is not important.  It is odd that I did not have to edit
   inittab after the installation; it installed that way.  I don't
   remember selecting any option on this.

4. When I booted after your modifications, it came up with the
   wired connection active.

5. When I try to manually activate the wired the connection, I got:

      eys-eth1: line 1: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
      keys-eth1: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
      keys-eth1: line 1: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
      keys-eth1: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
      3c501 device eth1:1 does not seem to be present, delaying
         initialization.

Thanks for your help.
Mike.
