Setheck and Paul,
I am running FF 3 but am not sure which ver of Flash, (how do I get the ver
number, seems the last thing I downloaded was 9.x but it is always doing
"upgrades" and other updates, so it maybe newer.

I just downloaded Kubuntu for my laptop, seems that Suse has gotten so
unstable on some things that I am going to let it go through a few versions\
before I try it again.

Back on the stuttering Hulu (it is only the audio) I will look and see what I
can see, I am not real sure where to poke, seems I have had the best luck
with audio in general, most times when I have it a problem is a permissions
problem and once figured out there is no more, but this one is strange in
that it seems to be only on Hulu, but will check some others.
