Don't ask me.  I'm real good at doing things like that! =P
Just try following a ton of links via Google and Ubuntu Forums for a
week or two, not really knowing what you are doing ...  Works like a
charm - a bad-luck charm!

currently set to localhost Dell-Mint Dell-Ubuntu

Hostname is set as "Dell-Ubuntu".  Left the "Del-Mint" in case some
little program somewhere is looking for it...

OK, looks like localhost is set to display a root directory.  I'll have
to look around for it.  Should be around /opt/lampp/something...

Now, what would something like: placename placename


If I entered "placename" would it go to the second address since it was
called last?

Is there ever any reason for setting something up like that?

BTW- I did find out my default swat u/p - same as root name and password.

So, now - how do I get lampp (apache2, mysql, php, whatever) to
autostart on computer start?

Coming soon: More SAMBA questions! *yeah*
