Thanks dxqcanada, yes, I've got internet access OK and did dl apps for a while, then everything regarding apps dl stopped. Mystery! Internet access has always been good.
The mirror listed in /etc/make.conf is ftp.swin.edu.au/gentoo The comments warn me not to edit this file unless I'm sure what I am doing.
Also, how do I find out what the device name of my thumb drive is so that I can mount that? I've tried sda, sda1, sda2, sda3, and sda4 .Bye
