Hi Wesley,

Thanks so much for the input. I've downloaded from the ubuntu web site, 
all the necessary packages according to the betavine vmc list, but 
because I've kept 8.04 up to date, the downloads are older then those on 
my system & hardy wont install them.

I've now done a complete re install again, in order to start with the 
older packages, but every time I download & install a package via 
windows, another dependency is called for. This could be a long process 
unless you can tell me the correct procedure?
