The Openstack docs tend to imply that networking is either Nova or Neutron. First of all, is that correct? Second, if it actually is an "either" situation, why would the Neutron docs talk about updating a nova.config file? This is RHEL 6.5, by the way.

I plan on using Neutron, by the way.

Nova networking is legacy. Neutron is the actual networking component in which you will have various features & benefits. You need to disable nova networking by not using n-net, so you need to configure nova.conf.

So so I need to install a part of Nova (and which part), or just dummy up a /etc/nova/nova.conf file?

you need to install nova. if you are using devstack then in local.conf file do this: disable_service n-net enable_service neutron q-svc q-agt q-l3 q-dhcp q-meta q-lbaas

this will automatically configure for you.
