Thats interesting to hear Rod. Thanks for the warning as that was
definately one of the guides I was going to print off.
I may still get away with it as I know my way around computers
generally, just new to Linux. If there's an ABC step in the wrong place
I'd hope to be able to see it, but if a command is miss spelt or
something then I don't stand a chance.
