Sounds like you need to start initscripts NetworkManager and
NetwrokManagerDispatcher, stop initscript network from running and use
the nm-applet to cofiogure your wlan.
Sorry but I don't understand what you're trying to explain. My problem is specifically with system-config-network. It does not allow me to enter the device name of my choice (ie wlan0). The workaround I have found is to copy ifcfg-eth0 as ifcfg-wlan0 and change the device name for wlan0 in ifcfg-wlan0. Then when I start system-config-network, my wireless adapter is set on wlan0 and I can complete its config. I was hoping system-config-network was a bit more intelligent in FC5.
