Thanks for that David,

Those are the guides that I've followed for every install so far, but 
I've just noticed that they've been updated for the latest version of 
Ubuntu and Mysql changes are listed in the "what's new" section. 
Hopefully that will make my life easier!

Maybe I will give the Ubuntu install CD one more try before firing up 
the Kubuntu CD.
Or maybe I should have Gnome and KDE both on my system and try them both 
out again. I don't really want to learn both and don't like how it makes 
the start menus un-neat, but at the same time, I don't like thinking 
that I'm missing out on something :-)

Thanks again
