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

It asks for the IP information during the install and then NetworkManager
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.
