    I have been learning and putting off weird things in Ubuntu that 
need changing. I need to see what 'karl-desktop' points to. If I do this 
it is odd too:

karl at karl-desktop:~$ locate karl-desktop
karl at karl-desktop:~$

Need to study this a lot more.

    But when I changed hostname to k5di.com all Hell broke out. I could 
not open another terminal and it killed the Nvidia needed to bring up X 
Windows. I had to back off to init 3 and kill a couple of new 
applications and change hostname back to karl-desktop to get Ubuntu to 
boot UP!

    Now I will get what I want but later. If anyone know why Ubuntu uses 
this wierd method I would like to know.
