TwinHead warranty

The TwinHead dudes did something else unexpected: they plugged in a FireWire ethernet adaptor to run their diagnostics through, and of course Mandriva auto-detected it just fine...

Unfortunately, it replaced my ordinary, boring, wired-LAN interface and this wasn’t as evident as I expected it to be. I’ve been using the wireless interface exclusively, so it took me while to figure out that eth0 was no longer the RJ-45 (wired) port.

Once that was clear, setting it back to “dumb wired port” again was simple & easy.
