screenshot of what I see with centos 5.3 inside qemu KVM on fedora 10
Description of problem:
system-config-network screen layout obscures Ok and Cancel button after default install to display with 800x600 resolution.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OS to 800x600 KVM, virtual machine, or hardware display
2. Run system/administration/network
3. Observe just the tops of the Ok and Cancel buttons, cant see which is which.

This seems to be due to the two new options of MTU and MRU since EL4. If these options were layed out side by side instead of one on top of the other, it would fit.
workaround: hold <alt> pressed and move the window with the mouse
workaround does not seem to help. I dragged the bottom task bar out the way and to ID the buttons, but am in the process of documenting system config for those unfamiliar with linux and have ended up with a screenshot of this with a note the problem exists in that resolution, and which button is which. Its not a show stopper, but it doesnt look very good :(
Thanks for taking a look.
You don't have to grab the window at the top border, when you press <alt>.
So you can pick it at the bottom and move it up while holding <alt>.
