In an earlier email I said:

- Networking:
  - It's shows my network connection, but doesn't show what type of
connection it is.
  - I can't see what device is used for each connection. Surely I need to
know whether I'm using my WLAN card or my ethernet card?

Also, on my RedHat 9 it destroys the existing network configuration files
just by opening the network-admin tool:

The RedHat networking tool is also flaky and hard to use, but it's
definitely better than the one in gnome-system-tools. I think it's a hard
thing to get right, but it will get there. I just don't think it's ready
yet. Adding the rest of gnome-system-tools now would encourage people to get
it ready for GNOME 2.6.
