Hi Rafael,

I really like to keep my user name consistent. What I've decided to do for
now, is just dual-boot a fresh install (64-bit) with my current install.
That lets me have a functioning system while I figure out what to do.

The install works well, except that I can't access files on my external
audio drive, even though the permissions are wide open:

pad at Studio909:~$ ls -l /media
total 12<snip>

drwxrwxrwx  1 root root   19 2008-06-22 22:46 PPA1.2
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 4096 2008-07-09 09:22 UbuntuStudio

PPA1.2 is the external drive; UbuntuStudio is the old semi-broken
installation.  I can mount it and access files, like the permissions
indicate.  But on PPA1.2, I get messeges saying I don't have the needed
permissions, even though it's rwx all the way across.

I will mess with that later.

On the new install, JACK lists my interface in both the Audio and ALSA tabs,
so I could probably control synths and write MIDI, I haven't had time to
fool around with that.  The terminal works normally, and I can play both
Ardour and Rosgarden through my external sound device.  So, except for the
drive, everything seems to be working.
