	I have yet to click on the link provided, it took me twenty 
minutes to find it in my stack of e-mails. Thank You for providing 
the link, it was nice thing to do.
	Today is the day to spend my time on doing the wireless, so 
far I have found a wireless Linux driver on Sourceforge called 
Spectrum24, the OS recognized the PCMCIA to PCI adapter, Maybe no 
driver was on the machine.
	Got lost for a few days attempting a kernel upgrade, call it 
a learning experience, not yet successful. Thankfully the server 
still works.

	I am interested in any other links or hints on wireless.
	Wired reported today a presidential commission is calling 
wireless a threat to national security. My bet is this is a shot by 
the big companies to regulate sharing bandwidth.

	This brings up security (again), over and above WEP which 
security is easier to impliment in Linux to Macintosh. I have only 
tempory access to this Mac. One other choice is to provide a Linux 
box as a wireless client, and server to the Mac By way of a hard line 
10/100. I do have an "extra" Linux box with a PCMCIA card.

	Comments, advise recomendations welcome.
