Hi Stan :)

I'm sure a friend would donate one, if he didn't ditch his old routers.
Once he would donate one, but I wished not to have devices that aren't
really needed. I'm surrounded by audio/MIDI gear, not much space since I
had to move my equipment from a large house with an audio studio, to a
small rented flat with a small room for music.
Anyway, I'll ask him, if he still has got a router he could donate, but
this won't help me today.

A new install by the netinst CD with modules=ppp-udbe resulted in
"command not found" when I tried to launch pppoeconf.

Can I just use CD1 or DVD1 for a "regular" install?
