Startup problems

Hmmmmn, thanks

That was OK, I typed:

iwconfig msh0 mode ad-hoc channel 6 essid olpc-mesh1
ifconfig msh0

Then Alt-0 back to the network neighbourhood screen,

My Windows laptop can see olpc-mesh as before but no olpc-mesh1

Is there more I can do to test it without another XO? We only have the one
(the others are with other organisations in the region)

I don't have an xo available right now.  I'll verify the steps tomorrow and
update the wiki.

But for now, can you try to login as root first and provide the full path to
$ su -
# /sbin/iwconfig
