Thanks for the further tips. I shall work on it more tonight/tomorrow and

If I have no luck with Hoary, I might even go back to Warty. My use of
the machine is rather basic, so I'm happy to regress, particularly since
Hoary (well, Gnome 2 probably) is noticably more resource hungry on
this feeble machine.
