    have a file folder that I can look into?
    Try serial sniffer or something similar to access packets that are being sent - there are examples on sourceforge but try to find something in the official repositories first .

    I really don't think the issue is with grub config - you can always just reinstall grub to the MBR using Yast. I think the /boot/grub folder will contain most of what you are after, with which grub reporting /sbin/grub on my Arch setup.

    I still think some updater is likely to be trying to access the net - I found the notifier accessed the net ... I also found that realplayer seemed to try to check for updates even after I told it not to

    My Verizon phone service ( thus my dial-up ) has been down for two days. Since I could not go on-line I spent an hour or so yesterday playing a couple of games in windows.

    My phone service ( full of static ) came back on a little while ago. As soon as my external modem hooked up to the Internet my computer started " phoning home " somewhere and I pulled the phone cord.

    I downloaded sisnif-0_4_4 and extracted the file. It appears in my home folder but I can't figure out how to install it.

    My windows xp would not operate with the Kerio firewall running so I had to restore it to an earlier time. Microsoft wants my computer back on it's leash but I will never use microsoft on-line again or get any updates.
