Be sure to have a look at the end of this bug report, it may affect
you: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=100528

FWIW, this got severely broken for me on FC2 test1; now the network
card doesn't work at all.  While debugging the problem, I found a
problem in initscripts that might also help you (without it you may
end up with hotplug disabled), but it unfortunately hasn't fixed the
problem for me.  I'm yet to file a new bug report with this patch, but
if someone would like to integrate the patch and save both of us a few
minutes, I certainly wouldn't mind :-)
