Compared to which Linux? :)

The configuration is in "/etc/network/interfaces", see "man interfaces"

I don't know what Fedora has additionally to the scripts in /etc/init.d
but Suse has links /sbin/rcSCRIPTNAME -> /etc/init.d/SCRIPTNAME. If you
want to have these you can make them with these commands:
for s in *; do
test -x $s || continue
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/$s /sbin/rc$s
Many of the links are probably not usefull but with these links you could
use "rcnetworking stop" instead of "/etc/init.d/networking stop".
