well, wlan is a nice to have, not crucial -- but just for fun: i enabled  
wifi in opp and did
ifconfig eth0 up (which probably should be done automagically)
and eth0 was there,
iwlist eth scan
listed several aps.

i had some dim recollection of issues, but that they were solved by now.
what i see, though, are several messages about sysfs pathes not found,  
which surpises me slightly, since i understood ms5 was fully compatible  
with 2.6.28.
