    I seem to have quite a bit of stuff, although I don't know at this point what any of this means.

    What I meant with the paralleling boxes comment was simply connecting one USB port with another on a different machine.

    No. There is no network, hence no network interface. Can you run a USB cable to parallel a couple of boxes?

    RE: I need someone to hold my hand here.
    Yes, I do have the UBUNTU 8.04 kernel installed and it seems to be working after a fashion. Admittedly, the question I asked was far too general. "What do I do now?" is indeed almost impossible to answer. Sorry 'bout dat. To be specific then. APPLICATION/ (ADD/REMOVE) produced a list of applications. There was also a note saying the list was out of date and that I need a working internet connection to update it. Out of date or not, I then selected "Printing-Configure Printers". This produces a note saying that printing is part of the UBUNTU main distribution, but that I need an internet connection to continue. I then launched the Firefox browser and soon wound up with the suggestion to put it in online mode. ??? Specific question: How do I put it in online mode? I have Comcast cable with a modem and wireless router. The main box is attached to the modem and the router is for my wife's laptop dowstairs so that she can google her crossword puzzle. I suppose I could hardwire the router to the Dell or rig it for wireless.

    After more sturm and drang than I want to talk about, I have finally managed to burn a disc with UBUNTU 8.04.1 and get it working on my Dell XPS 410. I just wiped the hard disk to do this, so there is no partitioning involved. The box is pretty rudimentary with one CD drive and a couple of USB ports on the front. It has Open Office and I have been to file some backup stuff from my main box. So it is somewhat useful. There are some games, too, and most of them seem to work. No printer, Internet, scanner or WIFi. of course, though the keyboard and mouse work. I have not a clue where to go from here. I do have a fifteen disc distribution, Debian GNU/Linux 3.1r4, which I have also tried. The Dell will try to boot from the first disc but suddenly finds itself unable find the very disc it has been working from. That seems odd but typical. Ok. From here, where? Ken Cornelius:woohoo:
