	Start up the machine, there is some issue with X & the graphics. SO you 
get choices, to reconfigure, or use low graphics for this one session. 
So that's what I had to choose. The reconfig option didn't work.

	I find it hard to believe that you've never run in to this type of 
error since you've been using Ubuntu & Linux...

	"Any GUI" means exactly what is says...
