Description of problem:
neat crashes when adding hardware type ethernet.  It has no problem with ISDN,
token ring, or modem, but fails when I try to add type ethernet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. While in neat, click on the tab "Hardware" and then "Add"
2. Select "Ethernet" as the Hardware type and click OK.

Actual Results:  error message was displayed and said I should file a bug report
for redhat-config-network

Expected Results:  should have opened a window to allow me to choose a driver
for the new hardware and setup the preferences.

Additional info:

I just updated the kernel to 2.4.18-18.7.x .  I never had this problem in the
previous kernel version.  output of the error message reads as follows:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 1210, in ?
