the point at which it seems to be probing. You shouldn't have to comment
out anything in those rc.d files unless there is some hardware at an
unexpected address. Do you have a NIC or other PCI/ISA card? Is the
CD-ROM primary/secondary, master/slave?
BTW, I see you're using MSN, which may cause difficulties when you want
to use e-mail under Linux. MSN uses a non-standard authentication scheme
for POP mail.
