If you believe that this is something common, you really have no
respect for the Fedora developers. I've installed Fedora 9/10 on
several different machines now, and I have never needed to do more
than plug in an ethernet cable to get wired working.

So please have more respect for the Fedora developers and
NetworkManager developers on this public forum. These guys have
provided me with too much good software for me to standby have people
needlessly disrespect their work.
