Thanks for offering help and info, sktsee. I know what
your saying and I myself find it hard to believe it
wasnj't there.  I just now closed this thread out with
a solved reply.  You might want to read it. You'll
find it hard to believe. I know the module is included
for the kernel I installed.  It was the same kernel I
was running with a NIC card before I switched to a
wifi card that I got working but had other issues.  It
just wasn't on my HDD after the first install and I
couldn't find it on the cd using a root shell, sudo
updatedb, locate and just manually searching the cd.
There may be a better way but I don't know it.
Not even sure I know how to install a module from the
alt CD, and would like to know for sure. Is it any
more specific than doing a "sudo aptitude install
rt61pci.ko" I installed all the other programs that
the cd failed to install using that format.
Thanks for your input,
