YYMV, but on the mb I'm currently running with, if I go into the BIOS and 
'Use onboard LAN'
or whatever it call it, I still get both NICs, but I get the PCI card first.
'Use onboard LAN'
gets me the onboard NIC.

*Gives up on the weirder intricasies of hardware and heads back to PHP, MySQL, 
DHTML and JavaScript.   Why did I ever agree to do this &^^%$£$^$$^^% 

Hmm...  I have my BIOS to use the onboard LAN....  I guess that when
I initially installed for the first time, the network card was in
fact messed up from the start.  Odd. That is why my NTP failed so that
should have been a clue to clueless.  Ok, well... since this was a problem,
I rolled up my sleeves and looked into /etc/sysconfig/networking and I noticed
that the setting were all messed up or at least defined here so I simply
deleted the ifcfg*** files in the devices and default directories, rebooted,
and viola, the settings appeared right this time...  my eth0 is assigned to
the MB NIC and the eth1 to the PCI card.  This is as of this writing...  dunno
if later this gets screwed up again but I wont be touching the System->Administration
->Network GUI since it works for now....

Now....  getting back to the ORIGINAL problem...  how to add ALL the new packages
that I foregoed in the installation of FC5-T3 and THEN update it all.  It has
been a REAL CHORE!!!  Grrrrrr....  Someone ought to replace the crummy add/remove
package manager for something better. It is real hokey.

Thanks for your feedback!

Kind regards,
