    My T-21 Thinkpad is setup as a dual-boot Win98SE & PCLinuxOS 0.93a Junior. At the local library, Win98SE connects automatically, open the browser and I'm online.

    With PCLinux I "started" very close, the yellow & green LEDs were on and I had five green "bars" and a green circle. BUT when I opened either browser [SeaMonkey 1.1.1 and Konqueror 3.5.3] I could not get online.

    Note: When I first started, SeaMonkey did connect ONE TIME, but when I rebooted my notebook the connect was gone forever !!!

    "Not knowing what I was doing" [I didn't know if the library was a LAN or "wireless"] I started changing all the settings. Now, I'm getting the message, "Unable to autodetect wireless interface" and on bootup I have a screen "Choose a profile "Default" - "OCL-W". And the yellow & green LEDs never light !!! I tried to undo my changes but went from "bad to worse".

    I need "major help" to undo my mistakes and get to a "auto-logon" condition.
