Name: R.L.Hogan (Hogi)
Place: Highland,M.
Distro: Ubuntu 7.10

Ubuntu interest---starting checking out the Linux world with Suse--then
Mandriva--settled into Ubuntu 7.04, upgrade to 7.10. Currently trying to
install 8.04 but can not get past establishing a root partition. gone back
to 7.10.
I am crossing over from Windows--Windows ME started the transition. I am
still running one of my computers with Windows XP PRO. I like what I have
seen with Linux and still on the learning curve.

Non-Ubuntu interests--biking and just about any form of racing.

plans for world domination--none. I just want to be sure that I make this
world a better place to live in.
