Thanky so much. I'll check them all to see if the rt*
mods are listed and maybe try out the alt DVD also as
I'm trying out the 4th install and still find it
hanging at certain spots in the install software
portion which I don't think it should do.  Also trying
the linux generic ipo the 2.2.22.-14 generic that I
remember you saying was the only one that worked for
you and your wifi card. I let the list know what
happens.  Thanks for the needed help.
