This is not the correct mailing list for posting your queries. Use the 
ubuntu-users at for your queries.

Secondly, when asking a question, always start a new thread. *Don't* 
reply on the earlier thread. Remember this point always. Always start a 
new thread when asking a new question.

Asha, please post your queries on that list. (ubuntu-users)

Two more rules are -
* Never reply to a digest mail. If you want to ask any question. Start  
a new thread
* Always set the topic of the mail
