Yes sir! :) Pretty much Tom Horsely answered the thread much better than I did. I referred the OP to Mauriat Miranda's page where the advise is to do the same as what Tom mentioned
# service NetworkManager stop
# chkconfig NetworkManager off
# chkconfig network on
# service network start

On a laptop in which one has both a wired network and a wireless network(that works) it is fine to have NetworkManager. Although it is a pain when dealing with protected networks. Sometimes one has to retype the password(s) to known networks.
