Many thanks for your reply.
I called up the website you recommended, but ran into trouble when I typed
instructions into a terminal.becauseall I could could get was: "error 27:
unrecognised command". So I through in the towel and reinstalled Ubuntu.
So now I have two versions of Ubuntu and Windows XP on my hard drive! but
all of them accessible. So I now have a certin amoung of sorting out to do.
