What is Network Manager?

# yum info NetworkManager
Installed Packages
Name   : NetworkManager
<snip>
Description:
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all
times.  It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for
usage on servers.   The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible.  If using DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

Check whether the package is  installed.
# rpm -q NetworkManager
NetworkManager-0.6.4-8.el5

If not found, install it.
$ sudo yum install NetworkManager
