newer distributions such as Fedora use NetworkManager 9.x , which is not 
supported yet by TDE.
You must use tools outside TDE to configure network. I personnaly use 
"nm-applet" from Gnome,it integrates well in TDE.
There is also the "system-config-network" utility, from the command line.

This message is not related to Selinux.
Sudo is not aumatically configured in Fedora. If you want to use it, you 
must configure it first.
But it is not required. In Fedora, when you run an application requiring 
root access, it just prompts for root password.
