This is a horrible, it just fixed itself. I dont know why. After I
powered up the next night I did ifup eth0 and it just worked. I would
love to figure out why... Right now I am happy that it works.
I still have not figured out the little thumb mouse pointer on the
toshiba. Does anyone have this set up? I checked laptop site and it
confused me (not hard). As I understand it I can have three pointers
set up on this, ttyS0, psaux, and the third and use anyone I have
plugged in at the time.
Performance is crap on this laptop, I think I have a few things wrong
with the setup right now. ps says that the system map does not equal.
