Actually, since I had pulled kde4 in, that menu is lacking that particular
option set, but in the kde menus under applications, there was the kde3
version, and it did have it, so I did get it setup the way I want, but had to
manually restart the networking to make it take. Now I believe it will
survive a reboot. Thanks for the kick in the britches to keep looking.
Note to others who would do this, there is an 'administrative mode' button,
well below the bottom of the screen, so you'll probably have to scroll down
and click it, then enter your passwd again to enable the editing functions.
Then, after any change, click 'apply' else it won't be there the next time you
look. And this applies to any tab you make a change in.
