 Following Bills suggestion to compare the results of ifconfig with ipconfig 
and winipfcg under M$ I found more information available under Linux. I 
looked at the info for the network card in the M$ drivers. It was set up for 
half duplex under M$ (I changed it to full). I don't know if the software 
would affect hardware settings at this point. If I change it under M$ would 
it change under Linux?

 BTW, the card is a Realtek RTL8029(AS) which gets seen in Linux as an 

 More things to report... I transfered around 10 large files in the space of a 
couple of hours (even allowing for the crashes from M$). Transfer was a 
single file at a time. Under Linux three simultaneous files takes 18 - 21 

 After transferring the files (and getting numerous complaints about the C: 
drive running out of space although it was downloading to G:), I decided to 
muck around with the Network places icon. I mangage to set up access to the 
ftp server as a desktop window. I'll play around with it later. Any advice 
for getting something similar running under Linux?
