Hello Caroline.

It will probably be a week or so before I can do anything, but I'll 
certainly get back to you and tell you how I get on.

Incidentally, I've since read some very good reports about PCSpecialist 
at Holmfirth. They build computers just to your specification, and they 
are very reasonably priced. Also, you can have them with XP or Vista 
installed, or, with *no* operating system installed. This last choice 
sounds very interesting.

The London School of Puppetry in Yorkshire? I knew that London was 
expanding, but I didn't realise it had reached that far north. ;-)
