NetworkManager 0.8997 in cauldron did not have the mdv patch at all 
because nm 0.9 is different than the 0.7 & 0.8.x branch.
(Some mails was sent on the mailing list for that if i'm not wrong), so 
you can expect that nm will conflict & try to start the network while 
mageia tools (drakx) are trying also which can explain why you were not 
able to connect at all.
However blino did  patch yesterday night the ifcfg-rh plugin so at least 
now nm is able to *ignore* the device managed by  drakx tools so you 
should not have the same problem now.
