There is a NetworkManager package for CentOS 4 and 5 which has a gnome
"helper" UI, but I found that it didn't play well with ndiswrapper
(which I needed because the bcm43xx driver didn't work for me) so I
ended up disabling it.  Also it seems to want to have only one network
interface active at a time, i.e., I could not both plug in a wired
network and activate the wireless with NetworkManager.
