If I posted in bad form then I apologize.  In all fairness, I have not
been a part of a mail list for years so my understanding of "proper
form" is a little rusty.

With that out of the way...  Maurice, I posted what you asked for but
I am going to post it again, in the event it got buried.

May I add...  I am trying out Linux because I want a more stable and
efficient OS than Windows.  However, at this point the start up is
beginning to be a hassle that I am growing weary of... or I am just
stupid. ;-)
