If you installed via the rpms I believe NM gets added to your init
levels automatically, however I might be wrong.

You should see something like this:

[root rhbw ~]# chkconfig --list NetworkManager
NetworkManager  0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

That means you have NM starting up for you on boot.  Otherwise you'll
need to add it to the proper levels.

Next you want to turn off your network devices from trying to activate
on boot.  Change the ONBOOT=yes to ONBOOT=no in your config files
(ifcfg-eth0, ifcfg-eth1, ...) in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
directory.   Leave ifcfg-lo alone.

Now when you're logged in to your Desktop run NetworkManagerInfo from
Actions -> Run Application or just launch it from the terminal.

You should get a notification area icon appearing in your tray.
