That would explain why *unplug appletalk doesn't survive a re-boot. I
had tried *unplug appletalk, in predesk, but that, it seems, is not
soon enough to avoid a clash, when networking starts. However, X Unplug
AppleTalk, in the !Internet.!Run file (from your other email) does work.

Networking also OK, here.
