Thanks for the help. I will give your suggestions a try, and see what happens. I would like to add that I really like the Linux Mint forums. I used to be a Xandros user, but that is not a good place to be right now. They lost me when I couldn't use the later versions of GnuCash for my accounting, not to mention their activation fiasco last year. I really like that you use the same Forum application that they do. Makes it easy to find my way around. And, everyone here is just as friendly and helpful as there, so I feel right at home. I have already converted 5 of my friends and relatives over to Linux Mint. They all love your distribution, and thank me for introducing it to them.
