Thank you for your understanding
Linux Kernel upgrade to 2.4.23 failed at the end , I somehow screwed up at the end when configuring lilo.conf and therefore cannot enter anymore on Linux Partitions .... I shall re-install....again , heh.
I`ll try searching for those NICs and maybe others , I`m so low now , incredibly dissapointed and not by Linux I guess but by me , such bizarre.
See ya soon ...
