After struggling to get the USB thumb drive working so I could
transfer files between boxes by that primitive means I suddenly
have eth0 working and an internet connection. It's busy doing an
F-10 update, about one third of the way through the list
already. Of course it does the smallest files first so it will
take some time to complete but this is a quantum step forward.
I'm still puzzling over what caused things to begin working.
All my installs recently have been via the LiveCD and internet
to yum is essential to get everything I want installed.
For the moment all is well.
Thanks for the help.
