I have returned to the Preview edition having had strange results with
both Daily 20040927 and Sounder 9 (see another thread).

It appears (from lspci run immediately after installing Preview) that
sk98lin is already installed and active. I had succes in the s-l-o-w
Sounder install with manually configuring to match with my router
settings. However now, even with those settings, the Preview
re-install doesn't hold the activation for eth0. ping to [localmachine
name] gives time=0.023 responses but ping to [router ip address] gives
"network is unreachable".

I also can save only in my /home directory, not on diskette, UDB-drive
or a shared winXP drive on the same spindle. dmesg output gives me no
obvious clues.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tim
