You may be able to deselect it, but it could get tangled up with
dependencies.

Why not do an install, and then revert to the old network service once
the install has fininshed - that's what I do.

#  chkconfig NetworkManager off
#  chkconfig network on

Then reboot or stop and start the respective services.
