Relating to initial build had some issues with built in video and network card. Updated base with:
1 - Intel Gb NIC (new PCI card) - integrated Gb NIC wouldn't talk any faster than 100Mb.
2 - Gigabyte GV-R467D3 (ATI Radeon) - it too was just sitting around in the cache all box (new)
Started again from scratch. Installing updates to base (not sure if this is right - not reading wiki right now) - Guessing it should be plugnplay.
