Also a little tip on dmesg stuff.  Generally it's a bit easier for the 
list to read it in text format so it's a couple ways for you to get it 
in that format easily.

A command like dmesg | mail -s "dmesg output" with email 
you the output of dmesg provided basics like internet connectivity and 
sendmail are working.

A command like dmesg > ~/dmesg.log will dump dmesg output to a file 
called dmesg.log  in your home directory.  You can attach it to an 
email, or transfer to somewhere you can via sneakernet, internet, or 
*net.  Might save you a bit of time.
