Asking Caldera for help (which will do probably) will take 1 day (no
offence, fine people overthere). Asking this group for help just takes only
a couple of minutes.
fantastic, thank you very much !
Now i'm gonna log into Linux again.
In a week i'll be able to surf on a ethernet-card, so by then it will be
Linux only !!
