Hi Mike, Eben, Christopher!

Whoa Nellie! I am basically a *user*. I can install and set up windows
and windows apps no problem, but Linux is so propeller head that I can't
make heads or tails of it unless I am at a meeting, and then I don't
*really* understand the fixes, I just do what I am told.

This doesn't work at a distance because the folks telling me what to do
can't see the error messages. Sometimes you can copy/paste them, but,
heck, the meeting is this week.

Knoppix is interesting, but the (way old) version I have didn't work.
There are most likely newer ones but on dial-up I have no prayer of
getting them.

I used to work fine in DOS, but Linux commands run on and on and on like
the energizer bunny. You get one letter the wrong case and the whole
thing is toast. If it doesn't work out of the box then as far as I am
concerned it *doesn't* work.
