Hey all.

I just recently did the same Gentoo port myself -- but I got a chance to finish. :) The best that I have been able to tell, it's fully functional. It works great here @ school with 5/6 networks available.

The diff is available here:

Here's a screenshot of it in action:

I'm also working with some other guys here in our lab to get a Fedora port done. Afterward we're going to start taking a look at common functionality we can start to pull out to make a generic infastructure for all distros -- most likely the mention earlier of a set of scripts that each distro needs to implement.

Ideally it'd be nice to use the gnome-system-tools infastructure, but I don't know the infastructure at all or if it can support something like this.

Lemme know if there are any problems with this one. Many kudos to Matthew Garret again -- I'm glad Debian is so close to how Gentoo does things. :)
