"Alright, let's fix that... open a console, type su, enter root password

and here comes the traditional gnome system tools proposal! turning this

"Alright, let's fix that... click on the 'configure' button beside the
device name and ..." [1]

The GNOME System Tools not only configure networking, they also
configure users & groups, time & date, services at startup and
bootloaders config, and they do this on Debian, Mandrake, RedHat,
Fedora, FreeBSD, Gentoo, Slackware, PLD...[2] and therefore, most of any
derived distro. They are also being sucessfully deployed and used by
sysadmins and users in Extremadura (as they are the default system tools
for their distro)

what more can I say?


[1] patch for this is in the oven
[2] SuSE is 60% supported in CVS, 100% support real soon (TM)
