Looks like something like system-config-network puts the value in the
appropriate ifcfg script in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts:
[dave at spindle network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-eth1
# Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller
MODE=Auto # <== HERE
Although not documented in the man page, "auto" (as above) appears to
work. Setting my wireless to mode = auto just gets me "Managed" when I
then do an Iwconfig.
