Will give that a try.  

It still seems that there is a problem when not using NetworkManager. 
If/when I get that new motherboard with the built in wireless I can see
this being a bigger issue.  In that case I want to use a static IP
address (do that for all servers/desktops on the local LAN).  And the
fact that wireless does not seem to work without NetworkManager would be
a big issue.
