    Hi, I got my BCM5751 to work with your help. It in deed is the network setting "DHCP", which causes the system to freeze. There are two changes to your procedure, which worked for me (on 10.4.9 using uphuck 1.4iR3 and nisa-it patch): a ) I did NOT have do the clean-up part, even though the drivers have been installed. My computer booted very fast, so that there was enough time to change the network settings after a clean boot-up, before the system started freezing. b ) I am using the setting "DHCP with manual setting". It finds the router without problems. The MAC address is also 00:00:00.... This does not seem to bother my router. Works anyway ( lucky ). Changing to the correct MAC address (using the "ifconfig en2 ether 00:11:....." command") brings the system to freeze. Looks like I have to live with the wrong MAC address. But I can surf the net. That's all I needed Thanks for your help! O'Lee
  2. Just to confirm: I am using GRUB, and I have 4 operating systems installed (XP, Ubuntu, 2xOSX). GRUB provides all you need. The most required features of GRUB to make multiple Microsoft operating systems work is probably "chainloader" and "makeactive". A hint added: There are many guides on the internet. Try to find one, which shows you how to install GRUB on its own partition. This makes the whole setup more flexible, meaning that you can drop/move/change/upgrade/add operating systems whenever you need. The independent GRUB partition (just a few megabytes big) contains all the binaries and configuration files needed to start the operating systems installed. My solution to this: I am using Ubuntu Linux for some development. I have therefore used the Ubuntu installation CD to set up GRUB and all partitions. You can download it from "ubuntu.com". The installation program installs and configures GRUB. If you don't need Ubuntu, you are free to scratch it after installation, leaving just GRUB behind (remember to use a separate partition for it).
