SVN doesn't yet have multiple active device support.  Some distributions
allow you to hide a device from NM 0.6.x, in Fedora & SUSE it's adding
NM_CONTROLLED=no to your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX file.
In ubuntu I think you add the interface to your /etc/network/interfaces

This'll be a bit complicated right now with NM 0.7.x in F8.  You're
probably best to turn of NM for now.
