Automatic needs to be enabled, its the notifications of availability I'd bet he is talking about.

I knew about that, but my clue was when it asked me for a root passwd to do something, and thinking it was a sudo question I gave it the only passwd I'd entered during the whole install, the one I'd setup for my wife's account since I intend to let her use it to get her feet wet. She isn't exactly "computer literate", lacking the nearly 35 years experience I have.
And got the passwd failed message, twice in 2 attempts. At that point I knew I needed to go fix some pretty basic stuff, and rebooted to the single mode to setup a few more accounts and passwds.

Again, if this is something that must be done, how is a new bee to know that? The install dvd screens did not have a release notes button on the lewer left corner as previous versions have had. I thought that was odd also.
I also don't believe I found NM or network running when I as single user, did a 'system-config-services' to shut off the bluetooth stuff and some other nfs related stuffs, resource wasters in a 372 megabyte machine.
