Good to hear your voice, Goh Lip.  I wanted to try Koala to see its 
differences, but I have been severely criticized for doing things like that 
while so uninstructed.  Oh well.  I will just wait for the rc, I guess.

I have a good sized partition I could move what little is there and opt for a 
dual boot.  Is that a decent idea.  I still would like to see tomorrows OS.  
If I do that, how do I install from a CD that I made that doesn't open?  Or 
what application would I use to open the CD?
