Welcome to the Mint forum. Also available if you need faster assistance are the IRC chatlines. Just click on Xchat in the Mintmenu and you will be connected to the Mint support channel automatically.
Another resource is the Community Website here
. The community site is still new and growing. It has replaced the Mint Wiki as a place to list Mint compatible hardware, review software, write and read tutorials and how-tos, and suggest new ideas to make Mint better.
