Description of problem:
I'd like to use linux-wlan-ng from http://linux-wlan.org because it is better
than the kernel orinoco driver (see bug #77369).
However, when adding a new device in redhat-config-network, I can only select
interfaces eth0 to eth7. The problem is that linux-wlan-ng uses interface prefix
"wlan" and not "eth".
I tried to add "wlan0" to the interface list in
/usr/share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NC_functions.py but for some reason
unknown to me that didn't help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-network
2. Click "New"
3. Select "Wireless connection"
4. Click "Forward"
5. Select "Other wireless card" (only option available)
6. Click "Forward"
7. Look in "Device" drop-down list
