Oh! s..t. I lost my notes on this, so it will be very vague. The
first thing I did was install 12.04 64 and get all the up dates
installed. Then I chose the simplest 2D set up, as I do not care for
all the eye candy. Then I googled for top panels etc, getting rid of
the gnome panel, etc. I am 83 and my memory is very short, but I will
install 12.04 in a VBOX and start over again, and post my findings.
