[App_rpt-users] Network Driver

Thanks Chuck.

It's strange that it can't even find the Ethernet controller.

When I do a 'setup' from the command prompt to look at the network 
settings, it's not there. If I attach the TrendNet Ethernet dongle and 
reboot and go back into setup, it sees that one but not the built-in 
one. And for some strange reason with DHCP or static IP the system will 
not continue to load.

I would assume (maybe a bad idea) that the ACID distro on the site is 
the latest and hasn't been updated in a while?
I downloaded it a few months ago when I was building 27616. Maybe I need 
to d/l the latest version.

Thanks for your help.
