No network or services tool after installation

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I just installed Fedora 12 from the Live iso. I'm having problems configuring a few things, namely the network settings. I just rebooted the computer after a clean installation (no errors). I can't seem to configure my network settings though. I'm not sure if the Network Manager is installed, or installed correctly. When I follow the directions here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/NetworkManager Nothing happens. Granted, I do have a "network-like" icon in the task bar, but it only shows a wired connection and when I use it to "Edit Connections", the wireless connection settings don't seem to do anything. I can't browse any wireless networks. It seems like my USB wireless adapter (Netgear 802.11n) isn't being recognized. If that's the problem, then how do I get it recognized? Also, I can't find the Services Configuration menu. According to this help page: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/deploy...rviceconf.html It should be there, but I don't have a "System Settings" or "Server Settings" option under my Applications menu (or any other menu). Why does my installation seem to be different (or have different menu configuration) than what the Fedora 12 documentation suggests? (HowTos)
