seem to be detected the same way each time I boot up, I was just
trying to prempt future problems. The more I learn about my slug (only
had it a couple of weeks) the more I think it may be better to switch
to debian, although the lack of a gui (although someone told me I may
be able to run 'webmin' on it) and my limited linux knowledge is
putting me off at the moment. Thanks again for the reply.
