Good suggestion - I had a USB Ethernet adapter which I plugged in,
configured via s-c-network for DHCP and the new adapter is working
just fine.  I'm thinking that implies that there is something wrong
with the "tulip" driver that comes with F10, since this bad behavior
also happens if I boot with the F10 Live CD but not with Ubuntu Live.

Any suggestions for next steps?  Google "tulip+fedora"?

Thanks again,
