Thanks, Ghost.  That makes sense, but I'm still unsure how to proceed with the start up?  Does it require a network connection to boot?

Network connection should not be required. You can try re-burning the OS image. Image files available here:

Note that LCD Touchscreen and HDMI connection methods require different OS images.

So I have my Pine working - pretty well, actually, while hooked up to my TV.  I've been trying to get it to work with the 7" touchscreen I ordered at the same time with no luck.  Poking around here on the forum I come across your statement above - that the two screens require different OSs.  I can live with that until some method or OS that allows either to be used interchangably.  I got the 64Gb card with Android already installed / flashed, is there a way to have multiple OSs on the same card so that I can use whichever I'd like?  Is there a way to do this while maintaining other settings and files?

Thanks for anyone's thoughts on this.

Whoops - checked out the Android Touchscreen/HDMI thread (Severian) and found the answers there!
