    It's setting XDM commented out.... It looks like it's trying to revert the rc.conf-file back to defaults...
    Alright so in etc-update, I would press 2 to "Delete update, keeping original as is" right? or should I do: -1 to" ignore this update"?

    and judging from what my net config file says, I think I should leave that alone as well:

    I'm not sure what iface means but I think it wants to "comment in" some parameters for my first ethernet port and eliminate the DHCP for both ethernet ports on my motherboard. Seeing as how my internet is working perfectly I figure I should leave this alone, yes?

    Again thanks for all your tips and suggestions, things are slowly making more sense

    Yes delete the updates. If you let it change the network-file it will be just as before you sat up the net, also you would unnecesarry have to reconfigure the net.
