Okay, let me rephrase.  It does not simply by checking that box.
Network has to be running too, and not NM.

Regardless, I find the fact that I HAVE to do that on my static systems
(servers, et al.) a completely unnecessary task.  I don't see why it's

configure that during installation/upgrade.

I can't understand why this isn't an option now.
