Well, <WHEW!> I'm glad I'm through beating this dead parrot, as it came
back to life. I forgot just what the heck I DID have planned now. I'm
scared to reboot. This crate has been weird since the last pile of yum
updates. I keep plugging in the same information time after time and
suddenly it's alive. Maybe bellsouth is changing up on me, I did find
the gateway address had changed, while I was in DHCP mode with the dsl
modem. So, I used that as well. Still hung. This time when I reset the
DSL modem and went back to connecting to it, instead of passthrough, and
then set it back to passthrough, I'm connecting, after using the
network-config thingie AGAIN!. God save the Queen. Ric
