It appears, the for me, NetworkManager is not working correctly,
so I used network instead.  I am able to get access to all local lans
and FireFox works only for local connections - not for Internet
(outside) connections. I found a real quirk with the network tool,
it messes up the settings badly, like placing Default router into
Netmask.  Very odd, so I had to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-*
(and checked Networking) and manually enter the correct values.  I have
had to do this before in F8 and in F9.  Seems like a reoccurring theme.

Clearly, I am unable to get the F10 to reach the default router
(or so it seems), so I checked the routing tables:

# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 0 0 0 eth0 link-local * U 0 0 0 eth0 default sonic UG 0 0 0 eth0

Which matches my F9 routing tables.

I cannot figure out why I cannot reach the Internet (default router)
as I am able to access the entire local LAN system...  What am I
missing here?

What do I need to do to fix this, please?

[ Notes:
1) I had to type this all out by hand - could not get Places->Networks
   working, no matter what I tried.  Network access to LAN works, but
   somehow, browsing of network via SMB does not work, and yes, I did
   use the System->Administration->Authentication SMB settings
   as there was nothing else available that I can see to configure
   smb, other than manually editing the /etc/samba/smb.conf file,
   but even my changes to this file does not seem to work either.
      Update: Samba was blocked by Firewall by default.  Checking
      Samba in Firewall tool enables the Places->Network to appear.

2) Gparted would have been a nice addition to the LiveCD as I
   use it regularly to prepare the drive before handing it off to
   the installer, imo.
