Thanks for all your hints. I haven't had the time to get back to it -
probably tonight before bedtime..

If I use insmod, what arguments are appropriate?

I can move modprobe.conf out of the way, but don't know if I can get
anything longer than 10 minutes of keystrokes into the box. I have a few

Until later - thanks much.
