I tested this out on fedora 12 and to get it to work I had to edit the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 and set onboot to yes.
Note: you replace eth1 with your network adapter.
In Fedora 11 ( and other RedHats) there is an easier way
System >> Administration>> Network
this opens up system-config-network
choose your Ethernet interface and hit EDIT
there is a tick box to manage with NetworkManager
untick this box
then activate the interface
this will set-up your interface correctly and it will look like this :
[root@loge-2 network-scripts]# more ifcfg-eth0
# Networking Interface
BOOTPROTO=dhcp <<<<<<<< You want this too probably
ONBOOT=yes <<<<<<This is what you want !!
You will still have NetworkManager in your computer but in an inactive state. Although un installing it does feel better !
