Description of problem:
I have 2 NICs. The first is embedded in the motherboard, and it was recognized
at once, as an Intel Etherexpress Pro 100B. Later, I installed the second NIC (a
very generic PCI NIC, with a Davicom chip). It was also recognized on the fly,
but I did not configure its network parameters.
After that I needed to take it out of the computer, so I tried to delete it from
the system by deleting it using the RedHat-config-network tool. Everything
worked fine until the moment I hit the "Close" or the "Apply" buttons. to save
the changes. Then it comes the crash:
There is "exception occured" message, and the window says what I include attached.
This happens when using English as the default language and also with spanish

7. Answer Yes to the question: Do you want to save your changes?
8. Voila! There you have it.
Actual Results: Ditto. I could not even save the dumping to the file I wanted,
but it only saves it to /tmp/dump. Unless I delete it or rename it, the dumping
routine has problems too.
Expected Results: The second ethernet card should have been removed from the

I searched for pyxf86config, but only found the version that I already have.
