Zeta Even though I ordered Zeta from an official US reseller store, the product box I received was in the German language (at least part of it was). I recognized the company name, yellowTAB, and the name of the operating system, Zeta. But all other information printed on the box, including the system requirements, were printed in German.

>ed. note: Mac OS uses Apple's equiv. of the alt key
>as shortcut key

No it doesn't. The Mac uses the Apple key as the shortcut key. On a Mac keyboard, Alt (aka Option) is the key position most recent PC keyboards would call "Windows". A Mac has (left to right), "Control", "Option", "Apple" aka "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Pretzel"/"Flower"/"Splat".


2) Zeta box in German.

Did the author try turning the DVD case sleave inside out? Zeta RC3 onwards (the first version I tried) had German on one side and English on the other - German is more often on the outside, YT being German.

3) The 3Com 920 chipset is supported by a third party Driver (see Bebits.com), but its a bitch to get working as the 3com 905B driver conflicts with it. Basically, the 920 is "compatible" with the 905C, but the Be driver only supports the 905B - or something like that. However, 3Com are crap at changing their hardware id's, and the Be/Zeta native driver will assume it will work, even though it doesn't, and the third party driver is never loaded. If you physically delete the old driver, the new one works - well at least, does for me - your mileage will obviously vary.

No, I didn't. I never even noticed. You're absolutely right though.
