As I write, the letters are traveling across CMU's wireless network.Yup, I got my laptop's wireless ethernet working.. and also foundthat the kernel update redhat did just renamed the module I neededfor my wired ethernet card to keep working (bcm4400 -> b44), andwhatever crazy scripts they use to manage that stuff was out of sync,so it didn't automagically load it. So, right now I do have two invocationsI can use, one to load my wireless card, the other to load my ethernet.More trouble than I'd like, but it's not too bad.
