Sounds good. I love KDE, so that unity business doesn't touch me at all. 
The reason I'm asking about NM, some users are not using it at all for 
wireless. Since I'm totally "wired" it doesn't stick in my head the 
program people switch to. I hope someone will chime in and rescue the 
situation and offer it up for you to try.

Ah... just cranked up synaptic and used wireless in the search bar 
...wicd is what people report working better than Network Mangler. But, 
I'd get a couple how-tos from the group before hitting the red button. 
Or, search the archives as it has been commented on endlessly on this 
list. Ric
