Dear TriLuggers,

I have Ubuntu 8.04 Hoary Hedgehog installed as a partition on a 
dual-boot laptop. It has been updated with whatever the Ubuntu folks 
have said they wanted to add.

Current Grub menu lists .....2.6.24-19-386 --- this no longer will 
connect to the Internet, but gives an ip of 169.......

                              and .....2.6.24-19-generic --- which 
connects to Internet just fine, with an ip of 192..........

1.    I've done some reading on 386 vs generic and I concluded that the 
jury was out on which one to use.
Do you have guidance on this?

2.   Which settings/files can I transfer from generic to 386 in order to 
get -386 back in a good humor to connect to Internet?

With thanks,

better to be approximately right than exactly wrong
