Well no, I was specifically thinking of your recommendatino for a BIOS
In fact the problem seems to be fixed. I found someone else's averatec
xorg config file on the web and installed that.
Still didn't work, but now the errors were regarding modules, not screens.
Thought 'to hell with it, if I'm messing with modules I'll do it with
an up-to-date kernel'.
Installed 2.6.17-2-k7 and bingo! USB mouse recognised, X comes up and
the network works...
