chkconfig --list network
By default, it's not on in F9, NetworkManager is instead. The simplest

chkconfig NetworkManager off
chkconfig network on
and reboot. NetworkManager *should* work, but it appears to require
some tweaking to start interfaces at boot, and I haven't had a chance to
look into it yet.
