One more post on my problems. Tried both new CDs, on opening screen I
clicked on check for errors, waited while screen said machine was checking
integrity. Got result that tells me there is an error in 1 file. Happened
with two supposedly new CDs, so I'm hoping somebody here can point me in the
direction of a "reliable" source for 9.10.
Thanks for the help, but I'm starting to wish I just stopped when I had 7.04
working.
