It has been reported by someone else as a medium level bug.  See:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=470477

The bug comments gave me the following work around:

The automatic wired network connection can be made to work by doing:

 "if and only if the flag ONBOOT in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is set to "yes""

My ifcfg-eth0 file had ONBOOT=no; I changed it to ONBOOT=yes and now my
Internet connection is made automatically on boot.

I would think that this is more than a medium level concern,
particularly for new users of Fedora 10.
