gutsy gibbon First of all I would like to say many thanks for your kind reply. However:I am sorry to say that I am not able to follow those very technical instructions. I have no doubt that this is the way,but it seems a pity that installing a new distribution of Linux Is so tricky. I have purchased two discs already and have to wonder how many other ordinary guys there are like me who would like to use Linux but are put of by the need to be a geek! why does Linux release these things before all the bugs are eliminated? Once again thank you for your very efficient service. Jerraldo.
