Thanks. Actually I had a very enlightening day. I now have useful permanent
memories that will help me to bother the list a bit less. I take this advice
and will not do as you fear. Nonetheless I understand more and will correct
all the prior problems soon.
I purchased a HDD large enough to contain all my current data. It will arrive
in a couple of days.
When it gets here, I will create suitable partitions with proper addresses.
Then I will configure to the consensus of all who have helped, to the best of
my ability. Then I will make a final fresh install of Jaunty, configure it to
automatically save to the appropriate storage partitions, and Back-up all
important data to a Drive exclusive for Back-ups.
I will create a 200gb HDD for virtual boxes to learn other Linux OS's and to
conduct whatever experiments I wish without jeopardizing my data. All this,
thanks to you all.
