Nio, Aere, & Basil -

Thanks so much for your responses. Much appreciated.

"Can you install Lubuntu without encryption?"

* My netbook is running 5.10, but was upgraded online from 5.4, installed
from IOS dvd, to created a fully encypted LVM hard drive.
* My desktop is running 5.04, installed from IOS dvd, but I had a problem
with the fully encrypted LVM drive option, and had to settle for encypted
/home only. I hope to reinstall with 5.10, to get a fully encrypted LVM
physical drive.

Desktop (from Lubuntu "System profiler and benchmark"):
* Brand name and model: Dell Inspiron 530s
* CPU: 2x Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual  CPU  E2200  @ 2.20GHz
* RAM (size): 3090MB
* graphics chip/card:
** Resolution: 1280x1024 pixels
** OpenGL Renderer: Unknown
** X11 Vendor: The X.Org Foundation
* wifi chip/card: I have no idea, and I can't seem to get an answer on this

I'll try a 5.10 install to my USB harddrive, from the ISO disk (alternate
version), unencrypted, tomorrow, after sleep!
