Very well said BaVinic!!! :) I just installed it today too :) This is
actually the first test release I installed. I thought I would help out
the best I can. I did find a few things, but someone beat me to it. I
guess because they are more experienced in test releases then me. :) I
am learning though. Usually when I find something wrong i try to track
it down to make sure it was not me who screwed it up LOL. Believe me I
have had to nuke and pave quite a few installs, but hey that is part of
learning how things tick :)
I am almost 100% M$ free. Out of 5 computer only 1 is windows!! :)
Thanks for a job well done!! :) I will try to help the best I can. :)
