network manager command


I'm having trouble finding the gnome network manager command.

When I use Openbox window manager, without a desktop, the internet generally works fine, but I don't know how to access a network manager if I need to restart the connection or set up a new connection.

I'm using Mandriva 2009.0 with GNOME, but as I said, sometimes I run just Openbox, rather than GNOME, and the documentation needs work. (I added some info to the wiki already - but it's very thin.)

Thanks

Edit: I found that drakconnect lets me set up a connection in Mandriva - that's pretty good. But is there something that can bring up the list of available networks, with a button to connect?
