Well it certainly asked for wavelan2_cs to be loaded.

The only thing I can think of is that you've got a line in
/etc/modules.conf that aliases wavelan2_cs to wvlan_cs.  The 3.1.15
drivers use modprobe by default so aliases will be followed... but
3.1.14 uses insmod.  As for where the alias came from, you've got me.

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
