I used the preview CD. I am in the Torrent now, picking up 28 Sep 04
daily and will re-install.

You're right, the sk98lin driver works, sortof. I now have the LAN
port looking active, but I still can't see the 'net, nor can I talk to
my router thru the web interface. (Same router and interface are
working as expected thru windX tho.)  I have run lspci and saved the
output (including a line showing my 3com GB port). I've been unable to
get that txt file onto a shared partition, a diskette, or a USB drive;
all are not accessible from the desktop. (Boy, do I feel dumb!)
I'll try with a re-install from today's daily and report back pronto.
