GNOME NetworkManager Applet Substitute


I just got FVWM running standalone, but one HUGE problem: Even though this is not a laptop, I am using a PCI WiFi card (RaLink RT2860 chipset) because this computer is on the second floor very far from the router. It is using a driver I installed by executing "sudo yum install rt2860".

The problem is that the program that connects me to the home network runs in GNOME panel (in the about box, it says it's "NetworkManager Applet"), so in FVWM I have no internet! I had to log out and choose GNOME to get back online and write this. What should I do? (I am thinking that I might need some other non-GNOME-Dependant program to do the network managing).

I googled "Network Manager", and all it brought is what I have and something called Wicd, which I cannot download.

Maybe I don't know what it's called?
