Don -

Yup. Tried it in a different slot. I was on the #debian channel just now and 
someone said it sounded as though my motherboard sustained some damage.

Lightning is just my best guess. I was at work - there was a storm here in 
Brooklyn. I came home to no DSL. The tech at Speakeasy (my DSL company) told me
that, based on my description, the modem had been zapped.

Sheesh, I sure can't afford this .... :(

Thanks for help.
