A-HA! you're on to something here, Victor. The NIE Ethernet Support
(enetsup.pkg) doesn't appear anywhere in my extras drawer. I just
re-installed it, and it STILL DOESN'T APPEAR. after installing
enetsup.pkg, loctsup.pkg, and modmsup.pkg, i only see "NIE LocalTalk
Module" in the Extensions.

"Ethernet" does appear as one of the choices when going through Internet

I think we're getting closer. I guess i'll have to dust off NCU and try
installing it through Windows (shudder). But does it make sense that i
can choose "Ethernet" in Internet Setup when the module (apparently)
isn't there?
