OK... so I've applied patches left right and centre. As there have been 
a few, I'll in-line them all at the bottom of this email.

The result is that there are no more unaligned access messages at all. 
However, I still can only scan one (occasionally two) AP, using iwlist 
eth2 scanning command before a bus error. Jean, I missed your emails 
regarding compiling the wireless-tools, I will try these and see if they 
help.

Perhaps related to the scanning problems, I cannot setup any wireless 
links, with Open access points, WEP access points, anything at all. I am 
losing direction on what information to supply here-in, but am willing 
to take suggestions.

Thanks for all your help,
Shaddy
