Thanks for the come back, NoOp. However, that's
exactly what I did. I presume you mean after the
install and reboot which is what I did. What gets me
the most is there is no mention of wireless networking
that I find after 3 installs and when I boot up only
wired and dialup modem entries are shown under
networking. Makes it difficult to set up a wireless
even if the drivers are in place. Are there any
preferred mirrors to download the iso from? Is there
more than one version of gutsy(i386 version) to choose
from? BTW, the alt CD only recognizes my NIC. There is
no mention of the WMP54G in dmesg or anywhere.
Reallly weird! Thanks for your help,
