quite frankly, I am getting to the point of wondering if there is 
something wrong with the version of Xubuntu 6.08 iso which I burnt onto 
the disk.... Just how long does it take to load everything onto the HD, 
and get it up and running? This is about the second, or third week of 
trying to get it to work on the Pentium 2 machine w/o any success. Don.
