this clearly has nothing at all to do with networking, it's just a python code error. personally i'd say just edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 directly

Thanks for your help acid_kewpie but i came up with a few more problems with it by going though the terminal (it would not recogonise the comand). however i did manage to solve the problem by simply installing installing FC5 and then adjusing the setting on FC5 so the the internet will work and then simply update the FC5 with FC6 and now it works perfectly. Yes its a long way round i admit that but its a solution none the less just thought you might like to know how i did it.
