You're probably thinking of the Systems Settings page. I don't find 
anything related specifically to panel settings though. At least not 
under Desktop, where I'd expect to find it.

I have my K/Ubuntu machine networked with my Windows machine. There are 
a couple of applications I can't imagine living without that I haven't 
been able to find replacements for in Linux. One is a free-form database 
[InfoSelect] that has all my contact information going back 15+ years. 
Another is an old DOS program that I use for writing, which is about 90 
percent of what I do. I've been using it since 1985. I use the K/Ubuntu 
machine for email, browsing the web, and anything that I need OpenOffice 
for. For the time-being, all the writing, i.e., the composing, is done 
on the Windows machine.

I have another confession to make: I've never owned a Mac, but I've 
fallen in love with them. It would've been great if it'd turned out that 
K/Ubuntu had displaced them, but it hasn't. Not yet, anyway. I suspect 
I'll be owning one some time in the next year.]

[I am intrigued by the eeePC, though. if you haven't heard of it, it's 
from Asus/Intel, and weighs 2 lbs., has a 7" screen, uses solid state 
memory instead of a hard drive, and runs Xandros Linux using KDE. There 
are several versions, with prices ranging from $250-$450.]

Good luck with Kubuntu. If it wasn't for the two programs mentioned, I'd 
be done with Windows.
