Errors with network cards on boot Fedora 11

When I boot up Fedora 11 I get the following message:
eth0: link down
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP):eth0:link is not ready
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP):eth1:link is not ready
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP):wlan0:link is not ready

The connections eth0 & eth1 aren't connection via patch cable because I'm not using them. As for wlan0 I need to use it but it connects fine after entering into the GUI.

This is the first time I seen this issue so any help would be helpful.

Sounds like your network connection is being managed by NetworkManager instead of the old method of turning it on at boot.

I also have a similar question,
My network card doesn't seem to work with Linux
Runs fine with windows tho, but whenever I install Linux on it
I get an error. the OS sees the card, but it isn't able to give
it an address whenever i give it a static one, it doesn't work either

it says
irq 11 : nobody cared {try booting with the "irq polling" option}
irq 10 : nobody cared {try booting with the "irq polling" option}
irq 10 : nobody cared {try booting with the "irq polling" option}
irq 10 : nobody cared {try booting with the "irq polling" option}
irq 10 : nobody cared {try booting with the "irq polling" option}

Does anybody have a take on this. . .?
