Thank you so much. I now works great! I have a few problems (GNOME is 
failing, PCMCIA does not support CompactFlash memory because memory_cs 
does not exist) that are not a very big deal. However, my ethernet does 
not work, which means I cannot update my system and I have to reboot 
into OSX before I can email. eth0 autostarts, but eth1 does not (I just 
start it up). they both run, reporting activity. I can ping my router 
successfully. However, when I try
ping www.google.com
it says
connect: network error (or something like that)
It is not a problem with my internet connection because that works fine 
for OSX and other computers. Any ideas?
thanks so much
nick
