  First I re-setup networking with blank fields in i/o and irq. System still
maps eth0 in 0x300 with irq=10.
No other positive results again. Daemon inetd is present. Issuing "route"
cmd, system outputs like this:

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window
Use Iface * U 1500
0 1 eth0
loopback * U
3584 0 3 lo

I tried to insert --> route add default gw so:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window
Use Iface * U 1500
0 3 eth0
loopback * U
3584 0 4 lo
default * * U
1500 0 1 eth0

Unfortunately my problems still remain...
...Meanwhile, I had spot a strange thing, issuing for absent-mindedness :
telnet <my ip address (!)> therefor a sort of telnet on myself, system output
in a bad way:

yy%yyy yyyy#yy$yuyyyyyyvyyy!
Welcome to localhost (mulinux i586 2.0.36) ttyp1
ile rev 2.01
at "Login:" I typed <<"root">>
at "Password:" system allows me to typing password in no-hidden way ! Anyone
can confirm this?
