	[Tuerck, Clemens]  
	there seem to be no network errors,
	ifconfig says:

	lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
	          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
	          UP BROADCAST LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:3584  Metric:1
	          RX packets:71 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
	          TX packets:71 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

	eth0      Link encap:16/4 Mbps TR  HWaddr 00:00:83:61:B0:D0
