FC2 + Win4Lin 5.0 dialup problem Network Device Control AND KPPP hosed

When booting to Win4Lin, Network Device Control now refuses to open from the desktop. This was the initial problem that caused me to break off installation when I tried using the Netraverse-enabled kernel rpm for my single-processor Athlon configuration. I now have Win4Lin Workstation 5.0 working, but I can't dialup.

When Network Device Control is invoked from the desktop after booting to the stock FC2 kernel, it just opens. (at ordinary user level)

After Network Device Control refused to open, I set up kppp within the Linux part of the Win4Lin environment... it disls up fine, goes to opening pppd, the window with the ISP name and Details/Disconnect buttons shows, and when Details is selected, it shows local and remote IP addresses. Nothing else happens, I can't even ping with it. However, it also does the same thing with the stock FC2 kernel.

This is what happened when I tried opening system-control-network (Network Device Control ) from a terminal window:
[alizard@terrarium alizard]$ /usr/bin/system-control-network
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/system-control-network", line 52, in ? from netconfpkg import *
