Fresh Fedora 12 install--can't network


I have a fixed IP. I go into the settings and select "manual" and put in my IP, gateway, mask, and DNS. It never lets me use the "apply" button. What's missing?

I need to click "apply" to activate the changes (adding the addresses, etc) but the button is still greyed out. I've searched and messed with it a lot.

Ok....I fixed it somehow. I think I mistyped the root password and somehow assumed the problem to be elsewhere. (Maybe not). Anyway it is working now and if it happens again, I can probably get it working again. Thanks, sohail.
