Re: [linrad] Newbie's first impressions

Thanks  Joe, I'll give that a spin.

Thanks also to the others who emailed regarding startx - yes that 
worked, not that it helped very much as I couldn't access the net as I 
hadn't setup the ip address etc.

I had some work to do outside( trying to un-blocka drain), so left the 
Linux installing, got back and it is ready. So now to copy some stuff 
to CD. But first I have to get that drain unblocked....
