I have been very busy with something else, but I saved your last email.  
I read a bit, but have not worked that suggestion yet.  It looked like I 
needed another OS to use it; is that true.  I know I can find that out 
when I continue working on it, just not right now.  I operate Kubuntu 
Hardy KDE3.5.10, if that makes a difference.  Thanks!  I am saving this 
one too.

Cudos, Cheers!, Ciao Bello, and Cordially,

Steven
