Hi Achim,

I can understand your feeling. I had a frustrating 2 months with our new
7500/100 PCI-based Power Mac earlier this year, especially wrt Internet
access. Seems to have been sorted out now, although not by going to System
7.5.3 version 2.0, which simply put me back in the hole. I've reverted to
7.5.2 and the previous setup which I eventually got working satisfactorily,
with much help from a friend.
