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.   
Stay tuned.
