I realize how it must seem, but I have not yet installed any other system on 
my computer.  I really haven't done the kind of experimenting that I seem to 
have a reputation for.  Look at the strange thing that happened to my name 
when shown in the konsole.  How could that have happened?

VMware and/or Virtualbox were a dream for the future.  I have only made the 
natural changes as follows:  Windows XP to Kubuntu Fiesty to Gutsy to Hardy to 
Intrepid to Jaunty.  The only time I installed an OS in the experimental stage 
was Jaunty.  I only installed Jaunty on recommendation from a very smart 
helper from the List who prefer's his anonymity.  The only reason he 
recommended it was because of my current equipment.  He also has the same 
equipment and it is the only way to make a computer now, unless I go back to 

Here is my equipment.  ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe Mempipe motherboard.  8gb Axiom 
ECC DDR2 240pin SDRAM, AMD 9600 Black Edition Quad Core processor, 1TB 
Western Digital SATA HDD, 500gb Maxtor SATA HDD, BFG 800W Power Supply.  I 
have two case fans that are programmed to turn on higher speeds if needed. 
9600 nVidia GForce Video Card w/512mb DDR3 ram.  Onboard nVidia 8400 GPU, 
onboard 8.1 sound, and a new SATA DVDRW.  The motherboard has a 780a nVidia 
chip too.  The combination will work out of the box on Microsoft, but it 
requires the technology only provided in Jaunty to work with Linux.  I have to 
edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst to get the video to work properly by adding the 
term pci=nomsi.

If I had know it would be such problems, I would have purchased something 
else, I just bid on the stuff shown and only paid 10% of its then value.  I 
thought I was purchasing very close to the best that money could buy at 
bargain prices.

Haven't been back 1/2 day and already I am screwing things up. Sorry my 
friend.  I am back to another fresh install.  Thanks!
