Gnome window focus

Just loaded up Fedora 12. I've noticed that the preference to change the focus behavior has been removed from the preferences menu. How do it get my windows to come into focus when I move the mouse over them ?

Just found the answer myself. Hopefully this helps somebody else out. It turns out that the preference to control window behavior is not installed by default anymore. You have to install it this way:

--> Administration --> Add/Remove Software type control-center-extra in the search field

It should find the gnome-control-extras package. You then need to install it and you'll have the expected menu option.
