Yes, that's it. I'm trying to add an eth1 alias for a wireless network driver that uses wlan0 as its interface, but it's not behaving the way I expect it, and I have to keep rebooting to see the results of my different experimentation.

comment Working bootable CD now suddenly freezes at starting point
I think it might be the drive's condition deteriorating. I just tried the CD on a different machine and that was working.

comment ifconfig return “unknown interface: no such device”
Argh! I was hoping it would not need to come to a point where one needs to learn how to write linux device drivers and groveling through the code.

comment ifconfig return “unknown interface: no such device”
I issued the "dmesg | grep rt73" command and it came back with two lines: rt73:init<br> usb.c: registered new driver rt73<br> Is that saying that it is trying to register itself as a USB device? That's odd considering this is a PCI card. Besides that message I cannot seem to see that it is complaining about failing to attach to hardware.

Do you mean "ifconfig wlan0 add 192.168.1.35"? That command returns "wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found".

It only shows the loopback interface (lo) and nothing else. What do you suggest I do now?
