Hi Gary. I'm not sure which direction to go at the moment. To restate the 
situation. I havn't had Debian Etch booted up for a while, but decided to get 
the updates, and there were loads. 1000+ , and more than 711MB, including all 
the KDE stuff. I didn't run Konqueror before the updates, or after. I have 
Gkrellm installed on most of my distros, and noticed that the Debian Etch one 
didn't display the IP address. So I built the Gkrellmip plugin  on Etch, and 
rather than displaying the correct address, it displayed After some messing about with ifconfig, route, and kde 
control centres/Internet & Network/Network Settings, someone on the Debian 
list suggested removing zeroconf. 

This fixed the problem, and Gkrellm now displays the correct address, but 
trying Konqueror afterwards I could not get Internet access. Firefox, Opera, 
and KDE's console for getting updates using apt-get were working just fine. 
Then I tried KDE's superuser file manager, gave the root password, then 
changed it to webbrowser mode, and could access the Internet ok.

Kevin suggested creating a new user account, and doing that, Konqueror works 
fine in the new account, but renaming kio_httprc, and kioslaverc, then 
logging out and back in to KDE has not solved the problem with the original 
user account. 

I'm not concerned about Kmails mail, or Konquerors addresses on this Debian 
Etch install, but I do have a lot of music apps on the desktop. If I do as a 
the last resort, what Gerhard suggests, will I lose all my music apps? 
Presumably yes.

Sorry. I'm at a bit at a loss as what to do here to fix this problem.
