    Odd. I have to take back my claim that Skype works on 9.04 because 
while it comes up properly the audio on receive and send do not work. I 
checked the mixer and both mike and sound are turned on. I have VLC and 
it has lots of audio on 9.04.

    I will look at help and Google for some ideas. But I must say that 
Skype does NOT work on 9.04 without some additional sound fixes.
