Thanks, Björn.  Your information solved this problem, the networking works 
correctly now.

Ah, well, I upgraded my other ThinkPad from 600 to 600E to get the 16M 
colors.  I guess I will have to do the same to this new machine for more 

Ad astra,
Fred Koschara

Ignorance can easily be cured by knowledge, stupidity is generally only 
cured by death...

Truth and Falsehood were bathing. Falsehood came out of the water first and 
dressed herself in Truth's clothes. Truth, unwilling to put on the garments 
of Falsehood, went naked.

The "war on terror" is a sham:  There is no real protection against 
suicidal maniacs spurred on by creative madmen.  In the end, the only 
outcomes will be the destruction of the American economy due to pouring a 
bankrupting stream of wealth into a bottomless pit, and the final 
destruction of personal liberty in the name of "security."  (When was the 
last time you were asked for "Your papers, please?" - er, that is, "License 
and registration?")
