Hello Callum,

Thanks very much for your information.  I will look at this.

Will it work with my setup?  I installed XP and then Ubuntu.

One more question.   
Can one have, as with Windows, different logical drives?  Is this
possible with Ubuntu?  I don't have a need to have all in one
logical drive.  In fact, my Windows setup included several drives,
ranging from around 1 GB to 100 Gb.  I kept my word documents in 
the smaller drive and arrange other types accordingly.
