Ok, thanks.  Actually was doing that and the rt2400
was not the one loaded. I'll unload all the rt*
related stuff from the kernel, then pull the card and
reboot starting over and then reinsert the card to see
what loads and take it from there. If that does not
work, I'll try the rt 2400.  Appreciate your help.
