In the first place, I wasn't being picky - Tim was under the mistaken
impression that Gnome and KDE (specifically Ubuntu & Kubuntu) were
different OSes, and we were (apparently successfully) correcting that
misapprehension before he did something to completely frustrate his foray
into Linux.

In the second, while I greatly simplified the process I _did_ get it right,
so please keep your smart-ass comments to yourself.
