Hello Nils,

thanks for your answer!

This moment, I will unsubscribe!

You should know that I'm an ibm-specialist for really running os like OS400
and MVS/ESA. Linux'n windows are children-toys for me.

Nothing but all, in the time of only 8 weeks I implemented a network 
of a lot brand new and bad old computers under windows'n ubuntu.
Something runs good, there was no problem, except  WLAN-configuration and
display-resolution by older thinkpads.

I learned that ubuntu is a little bit tricky, but understanding the spirit 
of the open-
source-community, it's a really great thing.

Whish you and all the others, out there in your magic space, to touch down
succesfully to the base of serious computing. <STS20090110>

Greetings from major tom, HAL9000, finchen (scratch operator on keyboard) - 
and, last not least from me!
