	What is it you do not follow? Windows is smart, they get the 
computer makers to buy Windows and install it. You buy the 
computer your windows works.

	Ubuntu you d/l from a web site and you try to get it loaded 
on your present 5 year old computer which came with Windows XP 
installed and working. It might work, it might not. If not you 
might hear about it on this list.

	Can you follow this?
