Thanks to all your help but unfortunately (being a newbie has it's costs...
) havoc has already been caused.
Not to worry though, since it was a fresh install and I still haven't done much else, I will reinstall tomorrow. Maybe this time I'll have better luck.
Just a little bit off-topic:
Can anyone point a newbie in the direction of some good reading material.
I'm a very recent linux convert and the more I read, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I begin to love Linux... and FC in particular.
I think it has the right balance between user friendly (easy windows like guides and gui's) and expert wise. I just love it and still don't know how to take advantage of all it's potential... imagine when I am able.....
Cheers to all
