Latest update, on the GUI app front . . . I tried to use Synaptic to
install Clonezilla and/or DRBL as well . . . they were the apps that showed
up on a search of "clonezilla" . . . and both "error-ed out" on dependency
issues and/or "broken packages" . . . ??  Synaptic claims to have "fixed
the dependency problem successfully" . . . but then refused to try to
install the packages.

Ran update/upgrade && -f install in the console, and "autoclean" &
"autoremove" . . . then checking in Lubuntu Software Services with the term
"clonezilla" && "drbl" . . . shows "nothing found" . . . so there must be
something about Clonezilla that doesn't "fit" with Lubuntu????

Anyway, I checked the Yaboot conf file, and I found the "append" line, so I
could just run a fresh install if and when I get a new looks llike it will
be SSD . . . in the linux partition.  Very slow to get this post typed out,
back to the fan blowing and nothing happening very fast . . . possibly due
to "pre-failure" HD feelings of inadequacy ???
