my problem wasn't like that. All fixed now, I reinstalled, and updated:)
now running 2.6.24-14 and back on the net. I think one of my updates got 
terminated early, things didn't finish.... just this time I noticed, during 
an update, that it was sitting there. I thought it was taking too long, so I 
looked ont he screen, and there was a MORE- so I hit enter, and it was asking 
me for the default window manager, I had to hit a "1" or a "2".. running 2, 
kde4 !
and I've run on static networks before, I know the drill. Mine was just a 
( self ) screwed up system.. luckily I have a separate /home, so reinstalling 
wasn't too painful.
