I am seeing the same thing (Thinkpad T43p).  Wireless works fine,
though seems to forget my WPA password.  Output of the above commands:

$ sudo /sbin/mii-tool eth0
eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-HD, link ok

$ sudo /sbin/ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
        Supported ports: [ MII ]
        Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                                1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full
        Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
        Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                                1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full
        Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
        Speed: 100Mb/s
        Duplex: Half
        Port: Twisted Pair
        PHYAD: 1
        Transceiver: internal
        Auto-negotiation: on
        Supports Wake-on: g
        Wake-on: d
        Current message level: 0x000000ff (255)
        Link detected: yes

According to /etc/sysconfig/selinux SELinux is disabled.  When I
select the Wired Network from the nm-applet menu I get the following
in .xsession-errors:

** (nm-applet:2843): CRITICAL **: new_auto_connection: assertion `ap
!= NULL' failed

** (nm-applet:2843): WARNING **: <WARN>  nma_menu_item_activate():
Couldn't create default connection.

If I stop NM and then do ifup eth0 it works as expected (gets an IP
address vis DHCP, DNS is setup etc etc).

This is on a fully up to date Fedora 8 system.
