First off: My humblest apologies to Lana. I thought this was going to
Playing, playing, playing.
I used the synaptic thing and installed one piece of software that I
do/will want on it. Gramps. It doesn't put an icon anywhere and so far I
haven't found how to add one. Kind of a pain to have to start it from
Also discovered there's a way to just get the KDE desktop rather than
the icewm, or whatever it is. I haven't tried it yet. I think what's
there would be fine once you get rid of that childish PDA desktop. At
least that's what it reminds me of, my Palm PDA.

I downloaded the Eeebuntu and the script to load it onto a USB dongle.
I've got to get a dongle 'cause I don't want to mess with the one I
have. Figure I will run it live for a time or two to see what happens.
After that, who knows.
Yesterday I picked up an 8gig SD card and upped the memory to 1gig. Is
there some way to move my home directory to the new card?
I've got a 120gig laptop drive in a USB case, but that adds 'extra" to
the laptop. Could use it for storage once in a while but wouldn't want
to have to have it all the time.
So far so good. Haven't managed to kill it yet. *<[:oD
Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.
