Hi Richard
Thanks for your feedback and recommendation !

Nothing is 64bit here and I am in midst of planning and 
preparing to switch from OS/2 to Ubuntu 8.40 and 
already do experiment with Ubuntu 7.10 !!

I would like to understand this better since I am considering 
a twin installation of Ubuntu: 
One for more "productive" and 
the second one more for test purposes with access to the 
already existing /BOOT, /HOME and /SWAP plus 
Win's NTFS and OS/2 FAT32 data !!!

Give me little more time till I continue with my Partition
and its future layout. ;-D

Cheers, svobi
