It just omits the fact that the fedora/RH way of doing things is to
use the ifup and ifdown scripts to gather the saved configuration.
# man ifup
No manual entry for ifup
 oops...
I guess we can't say RTFM here.

Also no one has mentioned the circumstances in which the values from
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default are used instead of the
ones you expect.  Probably because they can't find the documentation
about that either... Does anyone know what makes those files and what
triggers their use?
