Funny, It Just Worked in F16, and now in F17 it doesn't. I eventually went 
under the hood into the config files and found a setting that limited 
wireless to root - where'd that come from?

My fault for messing with a perfectly-good (in hindsight) F16 install, and 
trusting preupgrade to make something good of the transition since my old 
yum update way had strong recommendations against it for F17's change to 
/usr. 

It looks like a number of KDE Settngs things don't call ksudo or whatever 
at the right time to get the right permissions, and I suppose that's a 
result of the other F17 changes. 

It's making KUbuntu look pretty attractive.
