Yes, but I was too stupid to understand where to insert it...Auweia!
As my second email shows, I now get to the 'Choose Language Variant' screen,
using the woody 3.0.22 disks.
Now I also have the output of dmesg---the only problem (last line) seems to
be that it reports a '*keyboard self-test failure*'.
Do I need a new keyboard?
Do You want the complete output from dmesg?
In that case: included in a mail or does this list allow attachments
(too lazy to read the list rules, sorry...)?

Mine was too, initially, but I upgraded it with a new Denise pretty soon.

External in the special slot next to the PSU.

I can remove them both if needed---perhaps next week when I have more time.

I don't know if there is any difference.

Yes, I have to change a jumper.

I have to come back to You on that.
You have given me a lot to try out---thanks!!
