Thanks, I always forget about the USB wireless adaptors... and unfortunately
it's my boss's laptop and he spent something like $3000 in 1999 on it and
intends to use it for the next 50 years to make sure he gets his moneys
worth! I tried to get him to buy one from Dell for around $600 that had
everything he needed but he'd rather spend around $200 to modify this one to
suit his needs...
