Well I've been using it for the past few days to install Fedora-10 on laptops 
and desktops with static IP addresses and it works.

It asks for the IP information during the install and then NetworkManager sets 
up the connection data and it's permanent. Did I really say that, 
NetworkManager actually works ;-)

Must say a big thank you to all the NetworkManager folks for ironing out the 
bugs. It's actually a useful bit of software now and I can take my laptops 
from work to home and it recognises the different networks with the minimun 
of fuss, Well done.

Regards,

Tony
