Success!
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter
Posting with it now :happy:

Thanks again, Dave.

P.S. This is an old eeepc901 with defunct internal wifi - rather slow but quite usable with MX.

Re: Nearly unusable system

Of course we we do not yet know whether tumbler(d) is the culprit here.
But, just in case, here is my tuppenceworth:-

I do hope Vmware can be persuaded to run in MX: it is better than Virtualbox in some respects.

Vbox does not work nearly as well with W98.

I endorse the recommendations for 12 inch Lenovo thinkpads. You can get 12-volt chargers for them.
And you can get docking stations with DVD read/writers.

P.S. I have two X200 machines: they work very well dual-booting MX and W7.
