FC3 uses Apple's mDNSresponder and python-bonjour. At a minimum, you should 
be seeing it's own service manager entry in the combo-box, so suspect 
/etc/hosts is partly broken, mdnsd daemon isn't running, or you have an 
older python-bonjour RPM installed.

See the following regarding /etc/hosts (appears to happen with 
configurations not using DHCP) :

To check that mdnsd is running, issue:
    /etc/init.d/mdnsd status
if it's not running, issue as root:
   /etc/init.d/mdnsd start

To check you have the latest python-bonjour, issue the following:
   $ rpm -qa python-bonjour
or do a 'yum update python-bonjour' to get the latest.
