I never use NetworkManager on CentOS-5 or CentOS-6 with static IPs ...
but that is more a personal preference than for any other reason.

I basically only use NetworkManager on wireless laptops that are mobile
because it is very easy to get an IP or connect to the VPNs I need from
many different places.  But I am a salty old dog .. and you know what
they say about teaching us new tricks :D
