Thank you for your interest in this question. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help but I’m kinda-sorta Linux retarded at the moment. When I rebooted, the “new” driver hardware was found and I configured it using all defaults. Many thanks to farslayer, by the way,for previous help. I can recreate the live cd, so there’s no need for instructions on how to recover that installation. Further progress to next roadblock Thanks again, farslayer.
