I can see where the interface needs a bit of work, but that works, 
thanks :)  Now if only there was a way to turn Network Manager itself on 
off on the system, I would consider it ready for release.  (Do I 
understand correctly that the intergration of NM into the system without 
a service init script is actually a Ubuntu 'inovation' over the base 
package?  strange)
