Hello All - am I not right in thinking that if I am trying to load the module
for the network card that the 9.1 install failed to set up (yes, same problem
as before), the syntax would be

# modprobe 3c509


I had fondly imagined this to be the case, but the command appears to have
been seen as an instruction to 'lock the machine solid and refuse to allow
any keyboard or mouse input'.

Why don't I ssh in? Well you see the network card isn't recognised ...
Bleh ...
