Tab......   Thanks....  I had looked a little for a place to purchase the
Ubuntu CD but was always directed to the well advertised "Free" download or
"Free Ship-It" sites.  I've never had so much trouble with a download since
I first started using the internet, in the late 1980's, and just didn't
think of looking further.  I hope that is not going to be a reflection of my
Ubuntu/Linux experience.  Thank all on the list for their help and patience
with me.

I wound up buying a copy from a linux distributor on the internet for
about 5 dollars.  still do not know what the problem is (was).  other
than knowing nothing about linux I have had very few problems with
Ubuntu.  Everything works except for the scanner on the HP combo
printer.  I even downloaded the upgrade from Warty to Hoarty and have
had no problems (other than not knowing anything about linux as noted

I guess what I am saying is I hope this problem does not leave you
feeling upset about Ubuntu.  I think the Ubuntu folks are darn close
to "getting it right" and they have a great attitude.
