Description of problem:
Not related to this component per-se, but its involved with the fix.
When upgrading my FC1 box (which was upgraded from RH9) the network
configuration was invalid. Running system-config-network with the
same settings fixed the problem. The only difference I saw between
the two ifcfg-eth0 files was the old one didn't have a GATEWAY and the
new one did.
Symptoms included not being able to ping or connect beyond the subnet,
which makes since if it was a GATEWAY issue.

The /etc/sysconfig/network file had a GATEWAY setting before and after

upgrade but did after I ran system-config-network.
