Debian etch


Hi again, just installed debian etch on a home computer. installation went well but when I rebooted for the first time I found a network manager applet 0.6.4 icon showing in the top right hand corner - saying that I haven't any network connection. Strange thing is - my network is configured and I am writing this thread with the icon still showing. There must be some sort of conflict some where? Has anyone any ideas?

It appears that the network manager is for Wireless Networking and has nothing to do with Hardwired Ethernet connections..
