Description of problem:
Filing under net-tools...can't find neat anymore in component list
neat writes ifcfg-ethX network config files
to /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices instead of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
If you try to configure a NIC with neat, you can't bring up the IP address.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run neat
2. Configure a new NIC
3. Try to bring up NIC on network
4. Find that ifcfg-ethX file is in /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices
Reasigning to correct component.
