Funny one of the things made me remove mdv 2011 was NM, i set it up
after the upgrade to manage my 3g usb card, and it worked, but from that point
on i could not use my ethernet card any more it was always disconnected...
but was what nm thought...

Well i believe there are only two distros in which it works really -that i 
tested of course- Fedora and Ubuntu.
I believe we should go on of course, but before leaving drakconnect 
we should be very sure nm works for the most
-maybe studying fedora more than mandriva here-

My 2 € cents,
