Good idea, but no joy.  The error starts during the Kubuntu startup at the 
Hardware Abstraction Layer prior to xstart.  Someone at church this morning 
made the remark that maybe I dont have the proper driver.  I will be looking 
in this direction for a while.  Its frustrating/annoying, but doesnt make my 
system inoperable, my CPU speed is still pretty low.  I just can not use my 
TTYs...wondering though if it causes needless wear on my cd/dvd drive.
