Replace NetworkManager with Wicd

First step is to install Wicd:

# equo install wicd

Update any config files:

# equo conf update

Now we need to make Wicd start automatically at boot:

# rc-update add wicd default

Now let's stop NetworkManager from being started automatically at boot:

# rc-update del NetworkManager default

Now when you reboot, NetworkManager is gone and Wicd will be the default network manager. Configure it to your liking with the Wicd Network Manager found in your menu.
