Oh, and there are some network related issues too. I use the Intel
4965AGN Wlan adapter which Fedora supports out of the box. Thats great!
But I cant disable initializatio on boot time. At any boot the wlan0
interface determies a IP address. I use the Network Manager and cant
disable that. Its annoying because you cant break with CNTR + C, then
the system reboots.
To disable your 4965 wireless card from initializing on boot, (1) as
root or with sudo, open /etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0
with your favorite text editor, and (2) change the ONBOOT parameter
from ONBOOT=y to ONBOOT=n.
