For a server, yes.  NetworkManager is the system deamon that works with
the GNome network management applet that provides the UI to finding and
connecting to things like wireless networks.  It is mainly only really
useful for laptops with wireless networking.  It could also be used for
things like Air Cards and 'hard networks' (laptops and 'roving'
desktops which get pluged into different networks).
