Thanks for your comprehensive reply. I have taken your advice onboard. I will persevere for a while longer but I suspect I will eventually end up just downloading the full delicate iso in the not too distant future!
The 'option' module that I was actually referring to is typically located in the place I mentioned and is named either option.ko or just option.o (I think it depends on what kernel is being used).

You're right. This module is available in 2.6 series kernels.

license: GPL

It's questionable if a different module providing a similar functionality exists in 2.4 series kernels ... I'll probably start doing first 2.6 kernel tests in October.

However, it can be 'switched' quite easily and is usually reliable with most linux OS's, although I have also had difficulty with it with Damn Small Linux which I think also uses the 2.4 kernel. I was very recently successful getting it switched and connected to the internet (at the console) with both Debian Live Standard (CLI-based 'core') and AntiX-M11 (CLI-based core version). I will let you know if I ever succeed with my current Deli 0.8 core. Thanks again,
