[CentOS] Centos 5.3 NetworkManager success story

In the past I have not been able to use NetworkManager.  It failed to 
provide a connection to my WPA-PSK AP (hey don't argue WPA-PSK security 
with me, I helped right the spec on it, and wrote the paper on the 
attack on it! It works here, as I use it.).  So I have continued to use 
my set of scripts and hand-coded wpa_supplicant.conf file.

So I decided to give NetworkManager another chance given the upgrade and 

Now when I come out of Hibernation, I have my network connection right 
away; I don't have to restart all sorts of services manually.

Unfortunately, I am not at RSA to test it with their AES-8021X setup (my 
son's wedding monday kind of took precedence over going to a conference 
;) ), so I don't know how it would work with that setup...

But I am a happier camper right now!
