Then when I got to the real login screen it wouldn't accept a root login I had seen admin in /etc/passwd so tried admin/admin and BINGO !
I'm much happier with a familiar and richer Debian environment Many thanks.great to know that it works root password for freelink would have been "lspro".
changing it in /etc/passwd does not work completely as ssh is used...password is stored in /etc/shadow.kernelmon is also linkstation specific stuff. there is a "buffalo" folder somewhere....remove the complete sounds cool.
I tried lspci --help but the result of that also scrolled out of view. pete Unfortunately I don't know what NIC it has (or how to find out). I'm doing some research to try to find out what it might have been equipt with, but please don't wait for that if you can think of something else I can try Thanks agian everyone for your help.(NAND) © 2001-2006 Red Hat, scheduler noop registeredio scheduler anticipatory registeredio scheduler deadline registeredio scheduler cfq registered (default)Serial: 8250/16550 driver $Revision: 1.90 $ 2 ports, IRQ sharing disabledserial8250.0: tty S0 at MMIO 0xf1012000 (irq = 3) is a 16550Aconsole [tty S0] enabledserial8250.0: tty S1 at MMIO 0xf1012100 (irq = 4) is a 16550Aloop: module loaded Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - version 7.3.20-k2-NAPICopyright (c) 1999-2006 Intel Corporation.e100: Intel(R) PRO/100 Network Driver, 3.5.23-k4-NAPIe100: Copyright(c) 1999-2006 Intel Corporation MV-643xx 10/100/1000 Ethernet Drivereth0: port 0 with MAC address 00:d0:4b:81: XX: XXeth0: Scatter Gather Enabledeth0: TX TCP/IP Checksumming Supportedeth0: RX TCP/UDP Checksum Offload ON eth0: RX NAPI Enabled Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methodssata_mv sata_mv.0: version 1.20sata_mv sata_mv.0: slots 32 ports 2scsi0 : sata_mvscsi1 : sata_mvata1: SATA max UDMA/133 irq 29ata2: SATA max UDMA/133 irq 29ata1: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 300)ata2: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)ata2.00: ATA-7: ST3500630AS, 3.
