That is a laborius process, taking at least 10x what any of my linux 
machines need to reboot. From powerup to login was at least 15 minutes.

And I have been to that utility, but it has no place to disable ipv6 as a 
whole, has lots of names in the menu I never heard of, and when I try to 
give it an ipv4 address, I get to 192.168.71.3 error beep, error beep, 
and it will not take an entry past the 3. Now, I am 1st user, but no 
place do I recall being asked for admin rights via a passwd. Not finding 
a shutdown, I killed it with the power switch when I gave up for the 
night.

Thanks mick.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
