Preupgrade F9->F10 Now No Network Connectivity

I searched but didn't find a situation that looked similar to what I
just encountered.  This AM I upgraded my F9 box (static IP) to F10.
Now I seem to have no network connectivity, despite the fact that
Network Manager is showing as disabled and s-c-network looks just fine
(including the right netmask value).  Route also looks OK, and
ifconfig eth0 reports that it is up.  One unusual thing is that I see
quite a few "errors" in the packets sent part of the ifconfig display,
which is unusual for my network connection (at work on the
University's Academic network, rock solid).

I'd appreciate any suggestions for troubleshooting this.  I'm not new
to Linux but spoiled since I've had virtually no problems since RH7 or
