Thank you and I can say with certain that the Intrepid LiveCD is a
big improvement over the Hardy one. I have Intrepid loaded and updated
on the lap-top with all Intel everything. It seems to work but I have
ruined the sound. Not sure what to do about that.
Also the lap-top has no BIOS setup screens. Very strange to me.
