Hi Eamonn,

I am sure you've nailed on the head, I do NOT have a DVD-ROM drive, only 

I just arrived back from town, and was thinking that it might be due to 
the fact that Ubuntu 6.10 was burned onto a DVD, for which my cd-rom 
drive can not read it...

Wonder why they did that instead of the way version 6.06 came out...???

Looks like I need to buy a reasonably low priced DVD...

Thanks to all that responded back to me problem...
