Sorry  Brian I got called away. Well strange things are happening. but I 
might have an explanation. when I type     ls -ahl 
/etc/resolv.conf         I get the  same message now "No such file"
Possiible explanation:  First I installed kubuntu 7.10, than I installed 
ubuntu  8.04 over kubuntu  because  it has a better chessgame on it.but 
on start up it indicates kubuntu?
So maybe I better get a latter issue of ubuntu, any suggestion for the 
best issue? John
