Hi Robin,

I have replaced the nVidia card setting in xorg.conf with the proper one 
that worked with 6.06.   But no luck.

I "Slocated" for .gnome2 and had so many that I'm reluctant at this time in 
removing it from /home/ray/.gnome2 until I can know more about it.

It has many sub-dirs as "/home/ray/.gnome2/ ****"  as well.
I am ignorant as to its usage and fear to render myself unable to enter the 
OS at all...


Is there as well.  Same caveats apply...
