17 Thank you, Alan, for the pointer. Going to
18 and using Firefox's "find"
19 facility, I searched for each of the following expressions: udev,
20 cryptsetup, host address, distrfiles.shea, filesize, printer, startx,
21 mouse. I have not found the threads to which you refer. If you could
22 point out a relevant starting point in the archives, I would be very
23 grateful.
